Horsehay Pool - Kittiwake!!

An adult Kittiwake was once more on the pool and thanks to Reevesy, this was an entirely unexpected tick - never guaranteed on any Shropshire yearlist!

It was keeping quite close to the bank too......

Drifting ever nearer.....

As close as it gets!

Just about the only action was wingflapping!

But then a tasty meal in the form of a dead fish caqme on the scene!

Which also seemed to attract this Coot......

It looked like they were getting on famously?

Until the Coot reverted to type!

And the Kittiwake paddled towards me!

Now that is a nice bird to start the year!
