Mediterranean Gull, Kensington Gardens

It was a real priveledge to bird Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens this morning with some esteemed birding company. Fiona Barclay of Birdguides was down there hoping to get some footage of our visiting Mediterrean Gull under the guidence of local patch experts Nick Tanner and Central London recorder, Des McKenzie, who found the bird. Here's my pictorial efforts on the sighting which look decidedly inferior to the HD footage Fiona was capturing.

Other birds of note; 2nd Winter Great Black-backed Gull (Nick), ringed Black-headed Gull (14 year old visitor from Copenhagen), 20+ Common Gull, 1 adult Tawny Owl (Des).

Paul, your feeder's empty! Think of the wee starving birdies. Love the time-lapse.
