Local birding: Kittiwake - Brockholes Quarry - 26th March 2008.

Above & below: Kittiwake - Brockholes Quarry, Lancs - 26th March 2008.
An enjoyable couple of hours at Brockholes with a Kittiwake and a pair of adult summer Med Gulls briefly, 1+ Dunlin, 1pr Pintail and 23 Teal all new-in.
Mark Breaks was also on site, the day before he sets off to Fair Isle for another season as assistant warden. As he left, I wished him all the very best, then attempted to bite my lip for what seemed like an eternity before the inevitable "You lucky B****r!!" spewed out!!......... Pardon my french!
