Adult Caspian Gull at point blank range (there was also a 1st/2nd year bird present but not as close)
Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull, just starting to show fresh scaps
Adult Yellow-legged Gulls (40+ present today). The bird sitting down looks odd as the bill is covered on mud thus hiding most of the red gonys spot, just a smidge is visible.
3cy (2nd summer) Yellow-legged Gull
Leucistic Herring Gull adult. Called it Glauc when had it first thing but 10 mins later got much closer to reveal the truth, note the dark subterminal band on the still regrowing (very short) P6 and the dark wedge on the outer web of P5. The dark mark at the tail is the birds foot.
