Rainton Meadows

An afternoon trip to Rainton Meadows today to see the Mandarin Duck. They were always far too far away for anything but record shots but it was nice to see them. A Mediterranean Gull seen from the hide was at one point standing close to what looks like a Common Gull but I’m not sure on the ID of that one.
