A few more of the Bonaparte's.....


Mark Hipkin said...

Very well done Paul. Considering these shots are digiscoped, the top photo is outstanding.

David Gilmore said...

Agree top shot.
Of interest, did anyone else see a Med Gull at Ogmore with a red darvic PKF2. I can't trace it. For Med Gull enthusiasts there were 816 in the Portland area, photos on Portland Obs website.

Paul said...

Thanks. A bit monochromatic, but what can you do?

John Wilson said...

Re POrtland they seem to be getting more and more Meds there, either at Ferry Bridge or in the harbour itself. There were a lot off the BIll too when GBC were down there in Oct.
Re Ogmore there was an AdW there when I was dipping on the Bonaparte's but it was in the water so dunno if it was ringed or not.
