Back in Yorkshire at the moment for a week or so, numbers of Little Gulls seem to be building up as usual at Hornsea mere so I'll try to get over and take some shots of them. Speaking of cameras after using a Canon S2 bridge camera for a few yrs I've taken the plunge and got a DSLR it's a 30D with a 300 f4.0 lens. To be honest I'm struggling with it nothing really seems as sharp as I'd hoped, I guess it's just a case of practicing with it.
Before I came back home managed to catch up with another Drag tick in the form of Highland Darter with a couple seen at Loch Garten and one seen nr Lairg, also saw what I assumed to be an Emerald s at Loch Garten but it was very brief and I don't know what sp they get there and the RSPB staff were clueless!
