Birds made more delightful by the sunshine

A few bird sightings made more delightful by the spectacular weather.

Greylag Geese in a Scottish field, Teal and Black Headed Gulls on the Thames, Red Kites from the Harewood community near Leeds.

On today's run, at Leg O'Mutton bumped into the chap I have met before who periodically counts the birds on the Thames between Putney and Barnes Bridges. He told me that Teal were more numerous than Mallards on the Thames, and that there were a couple of Gadwall on the Leg. He hadnt seen any herons and suspected they might alredy be on their (new?) nests. Wonder if he puts his data on the web?
