An afternoon visit with my mum to see my dad almost ended in disaster when she opened the car door before I could get round to do it for her. A very strong gust caught the door which she was still holding and violently ejected her onto the pavement head first. Fortunately she was only shaken but the car bodywork and door was dented, one of the hinges sheared, and now only opens about eighteen inches.

|I've been on the lookout for yellow colour-ringed gulls from Poland, hoping for a Caspian, but unfortunately not all yellow CRs are from there. This Herring Gull, 5R0B, was probably ringed near the Wash|
