|"Number 1" started at the north end of the flooded golf course, and after a while, started a casual wander closer... Looked and behaved like a greedy wood pigeon!|
Yesterday afternoon was surreal... I think there will be much recollection over the next few years of the "there's two!" moment...
Today I was at work in the morning, as was disappointed to hear that there (to date) not been any further sightings. There is no doubt that they could reappear (I think the Ayrshire bird went AWOL a few years back, reappearing on farmland a few days later).
|Flew round to check us out...|
|Landed closer, had a sneaky worm snack...|
|Flew round a bit more|
|Landed closer again (rock hard these fellas')|
|Had enough ... and off to meet "number 2"|
Judging by the face pattern and wing markings, I've photographed the same bird throughout... the second bird appeared with the former as the gulls started to drift back to the beach
