Bullfinches and Coal Tit

The Bullfinches were back in the garden, in the usual tree at 9am on Saturday 26th february livening up a dismal rain sodden day. This time the female Bullfinch was to the fore but always slightly obscured by branches, the male Bullfinch was right at the back. The Coal Tit was again feeding on the peanuts on both days and it was even singing from the Buddlea Globusa bush at the back on Sunday morning. The 4 Long- tailed Tits (a family party?) again visited the fatballs on both days.
Sunday afternoon 27th February, a walk along Gorleston seafront revealed a Yellow- legged Gull on the Yarmouth side of the quay, viewed from the Pier and an indeterminate Seal seen out at sea (only viewed through binoculars at long range).

Red-flanked Bluetails.
The Pakefield sighting has been accepted by BBRC.
What about the photographed Arnold's Walk bird?

Have you sent your photo of the Arnold Walk red-flanked bluetail to BBRC?

Peter Ransome said...

No I haven't perhaps i should.
The finder Robert Win obtained some really good shots, so I assumed he'd included these with his submission.
