I am going back to Israel for a few days to bring my dog Bamba back to the UK. Since we moved to the UK a couple of months ago she stayed in Israel with good friends and was very happy, but my family and myself are really looking forward to reunite with her.
Left Norwich at 2 am, to take the 7 am ferry from Dover to Calais. Spent most of the trip seawatching - lots of Gannets and commoner gulls, but nothing of interest. Out of boredom I photographed some Gannets passing by:
And a distant Kittiwake:
Lots of birds on the mudflats south of Calais - big numbers of gulls, shorebirds and geese (too distant but should be Brent).
Now I am waiting in Paris for my flight to Israel, looking forward to some sunshine!
