at the Northernmost Birding Festival… in the WORLD!
Here’s few shots of young Glaucous Gulls. Mostly taken in the harbour at Vardø, Varanger where the Gullfest 2015 is happening as I write. I can’t be with the guys this time so I’ve dug out some old, unused and some intriguing pics from previous Gullfests.
Also I will throw in some scary unidentifieds and a little colour for those less gull- inclined 🙂
These are mostly juveniles or if in moulting, technically first winters in March (2cy)
and a mystery gull (whatdoyathink?)
and a red thing from nearby 🙂
When you see Pine Grosbeaks flying around chasing each other through taiga zone trees and canopy, they make wonderfully fluty calls
and a young red thing who will one day, look like the fella above (photo:Tony Davison)
