2014 Year End

Connected with the putative Thayer's Gull in the roost at Pugney's CP on Sunday 28 December 2014, record shot below, having seen a juv. Iceland Gull at Ravensthorpe earlier, also shown below.

Struggled with raptors on the South Yorkshire moors, no sign of any Rough-legged Buzzards between Xmas and the year end.

Twitched the East Yorkshire Little Bustard on New Year's Eve and late in the day finally saw a Rough-legged Buzzard at nearby Grindale, both shown below. A Kestrel was jealous of its hovering abilities and buzzed it forcing it further from the road.
