Deserter Wheatear

Scrambled by a text from Crammy Birder, it was 633 squadron-like into the Fokker and off to Royal Newbiggin for some superb, albeit very brief glimpses of my first Desert Wheatear.  Fantastic, but it was very mobile and within minutes of getting there, it was off, never to be seen again.

Yesterday, I travelled to Seaton Common for my first Caspian Gull.  Magic!  I have read some blogs that talk of the gulling season.  Interesting terminology is the word 'gulling'; a natural extension of the past-time dogging, so I am told! 

I thought I would use the phrase 'gulling' in this blog to get some more hits from those who will be looking for a gulling or dogging website and all they will get are details of gulls and if they want, a picture of my dog!

And I know the 633 team flew De Havilland Mosquitos and not Fokkers, but I am sure 'Fokker' will add to the dogging and gulling 'hit' tally!
