W.Sussex / Hants

After 2 dips I had decided not to bother going again for the Paddyfield but a warming of the weather had seen it showing well. The next day I was down there watching it flycatching in the sunshine

Next stop Gosport boating lake to see the returning adult Ring-billed Gull

Smaller billed cousin for comparison

Toward the end of the day I was on my way back home when Roger called to say he had relocated the Green-winged Teal at Farlington, so did an about turn.
