Iceland Gull again in Arbroath

The 2nd winter Iceland Gull remains loyal to the area near the toilet block at Victoria Park, Arbroath and was seen today with a flock of mixed gulls following a plough in the first field along the cliff path. The stubble is likely to have been ploughed in by now leaving a strip along the path I hope.
A few others below before they flew off.

Iceland Gull, difficult to get in the low sun

This ringed Sanderling is the same one I recorded at Hatton, south of Arbroath and has been passed to the ringers. Today it was in front of the paddling pool at West Links, Arbroath

Someone's shiny new drone, flying illegally close to people at Victoria Park, within 5 metres of the road. I'm not sure what I'll do with the photo of the pilot and his car?

Carrion Crow, West Links

Rook, also at West Links. We have  Olive's daughters dog to look after and he was the only dog on the beach not to chase away the birds. People don't seem to realise that when someone is pointing a camera at birds that throwing a ball into the area isn't received well, prats!
