12. Turnstone - and a hat-trick!

Turnstones don't stand still much. But one I saw today was still for a few minutes and it seemed that it was doing the avian equivalent of taking the sports supplement to the smallest room. Three times it let go, before it started to wonder where it's mates had gone, and left.

And here it is, standing next to the pile(s).

Next time - what else do Turnstones do with poo?

15. Med Gull this lunchtime, with a quickfire double release.

Nearby, there was a hint of a Carrion Crow letting go, but due to the mist and distance couldn't be sure that it wasn't just constipated!

Saw one of four Norwich Cathedral peregrine chicks let go (with some gusto I might add) live on the webcam this morning - but it doesn't go on the list as it wasn't 'in the flesh' so to speak.

Today I saw a Common Tern gush forth three times in ten minutes. Not sure that Sand Eels agreed with it, which is a shame. Unless it had been saving it up, or it was just more busy after a quick doze. The juvey that sat next to it went once, but pellety rather than a proper terny squirt.

I appreciate that this is not exactly scientific.
