After a couple of days off, I went out yesterday on a trip I was supposed to be doing with the LNHS on Sunday but now have other plans, so decided to still go on my own. Probably didn't see as much (only managed an hour) but still got a few newies.

Fruitless go at the Franklin's Gull, but I got a newie for the year (that I missed last year despite it being common as muck) on the way.

Had some Siskins drop in again to the garden feeders, meaning I didn't have to leave the house to add to my list today.

Went to Rainham for the Razorbill but was sadly too late :( but did get a new lifer!

113 - Eurasian Reed Warbler
114 - Bearded Reedling
115 - Short-eared Owl

This draws me level with last year's total; just one more bird to find... and with loads of summer birds still not seen, it's a definite improvement over last year!

Wow, not updated in months... not actually done much birding thanks to a few consecutive dips that have really tested my willingness to continue - I'm hoping to get back into it and scrape through the 150 mark before year end. Still some common stuff left!

16/07 - Ruislip Woods
141 - Eurasian Bullfinch

13/08 - Brookmill Park, Deptford
142 - Common Kingfisher

22/08 - Regent's Park
143 - Yellow-legged Gull
144 - Caspian Gull
145 - European Pied Flycatcher

27/08 - Rainham Marshes RSPB
146 - Common Sandpiper
147 - Common Greenshank
148 - Wood Sandpiper

NB: That Caspian Gull was self-ID'd and I have no photo. Hopefully I will get a confirmed ID on another one soon so I don't have to keep that one as a first sighting.
