Whoops I made a boo boo

A bit windy this weekend, and it seems that little is being reported.
Did a bit of shopping this morning and went for a drive around the villages west of Stevenage. Apart from a few corvids, a couple of pheasants and some very low flying Skylarks, hardly anything was showing in the wind.

Have been going through last weeks images and found a cock up.
The 'Ring Bill Gull' that Colin and I were photographing is a well marked Common Gull. The black bill band is a bit thin and weak, though the large chunky yellow bill and the rather pale grey mantle are superficially Ring bill like. Bit too much white in the wing tip flight shot too. Guess it never came back from when it flew off after all.
