Offical 400th

A trip to Oxford the week before last and I saw my offical 400th BOU bird the Rufous Turtle Dove. It was a straight forward trip there, peered over some hedges and bingo the bird sat nicely on the fence. I was surprised at how large the bird was I just didn't expect it to be anything different than a Turtle Dove.

It was also nice to see a large number of Bullfinches in and around the town and in the gardens on the feeders, this is a sight I had never seen before.

We then headed to Rainham and scanned the gulls I found a Lesser Backed look alike but we could not find the Slaty Backed Gull.
