Office list extras

Assistant Editor Mike Weedon writes...

In addition to the list posted below of birds seen from our office window this year, I am pleased to add:

Herring Gull and
Great Black-backed Gull

Both of which flew past today.

It has been pretty sunny around here today, and the exceptional mildness has even brought out a Red Admiral butterfly in the garden of one local birder who lives in Peterborough.

The sun has provided plenty of thermals, which are being enjoyed by passing corvids, but most notably by a pair of Sparrowhawks, which have even indulged in a spot of sky-dancing, which I must say is very pleasing on the eye.
