York today

Off to york today con mi famille in lovely winter sunshine. Naturally, birdwatching was not going to feature highly on todays list, but next to the river we managed to pick up a Juvenile herring gull besides the black-headed, graylag and canada geese, mute swan and mallard. This sparked a challenge to se how many species we could muster during our york moochings:
-Black headed gulls
-Canada geese
-Graylag geese
-Herring gull
-House sparrow
-Blue tit
-Long tailed tit-something of a surprise, especially the great view we got of it
-Feral pigeon
-Carrion crow

and a grey squirrel, just for diversity
Also had buzzard, kestrel and a rookary on the way there
