Winter reminder

A rather winter-like weekend once the Great White Egret flew off from Scarborough. Glaucous Gulls, Waxwings, Snow Buntings and Twite featured prominent but alas no late autumn hoped-for's such as Dusky, Hume's or even Pallas's Warblers, yet..........

This rather dark looking Glaucous Gull was found in Scarborough Harbour Friday - Roy Harvey. The rather long wings and rounded head may suggest this bird to be a female.
The Glaucous Gull in Scarborough Harbour today looking a bit more typical perhaps? - Dave Mansell
 Waxwing - John Hewitt. This bird was photographed in Easington this morning and later found its way on to the photographers garden list.
Yes, winter is here as this flock of Snow Buntings at Beacon Ponds seems to confirm. - John Hewitt
