September 12th 2011
Decided at the last minute to head to Belvide Reservoir,Staffs for the (Juv) Sabine's Gull,with the wind really strong but the light quite good it was going to be a challenge,on arrival i was met by an ever increasing wing straight into my face but the target was close in making for some fantastic views with over 500 photos taken but only about 50 worth keeping shows just how tricky it was!! I'd just finished when i had the call from J.Judge telling me there was a (Adult) Gannet at Draycote water (a much needed Warks tick!) an hour later i was on Farborough bank watching the bird at distance but still a great sight with the bird even plunge diving!! (Warks tick No 236) 1 Photo below of the Sabine's Gull & 2 of the confiding juv Northern Wheatear at Draycote & record shot of the Gannet......
