Do you want a flake with that?

2 hours on the Nunnery Lakes reserve this morning yielded 55 species and revealed a few signs of spring (can't quite believe it was -13 on Sun!): Singing Skylark, displaying Lapwing and my first Breckland Curlew of the year (99).

Actually I could argue (but won't!) that yesterday's efforts put me on 99.5 - the lunchtime Lakes thrashing produced a gull like none I've seen before - though someone has! Still haven't had a 100% Mediterranean Gull at the Lakes but yesterday's bird was half way there... sadly the other half was firmly in the Black-headed camp. Educational though, if bloody annoying.
