Just a quick one

Two gulls, a tern, a warbler, and a moth.

Dug these from the archives; back to some sort of normal soon, I hope.



Black-headed Gull


Lesser Black-backed Gull
I



Common Tern



Chiffchaff




No idea which moth this.


And the archives yielded something interesting from my visit to the lakes when I saw Adrian, back in April. I'll sort them out for next time.

Enjoy the rest of the day

  3. ...this is a nice assortment, Keith! I loved the gull taking off--and your new ID photo too! Interesting little moth with is long snout and his half-missing antenna. The goslings and swans in the earlier post were adorable--must have been fun to watch them.
