Fishmoor Res, Blackburn, Lancs: 8th Jan 2011.

Above: Mike Watson (second left) , Myself (centre) abs Janos Olah (right).

With the Wife in tow, I only had time to call in at Fishmoor briefly on two occasions during the afternoon for a quick check of any Gulls present. A great surprise on the second brief call-in was the arrival of Mike Watson who brought with him Janos Olah of Hungarian based 'SAKERTOUR' Birding Company plus two friends on a brief visit to the UK. Mike, Janos and friends were keen to see the Iceland Gull which has roosted the past few evenings, and it duly obliged for them at 16:28.

I enjoyed a fabulous long weekend's birding in the Hortobagy, Hungary, with Sakertours and Janos as our guide back in mid-February 2008. A fantastic few days. Trip report can be read HERE .
