Birchwood pool,
Another gull filled day at moore nr today. There were not many gulls visiting the pool today but the list is still very impressive. An adult caspian gull was best bird today showing on the pool for only a couple of minutes but I managed a couple of shots as it flew off. A cracking bird!
Also 2 glaucous gulls , 2 iceland gulls, 3 1st w YL gull, and an adult YL gull.
A lesser black backed gull showed 3 times on the pool with yellow wing tags with the letter N on them.

Look at the length of the white tip on P10, the solid thin black mark on P5, and the grey tongues eating into the black wing tip. The real thing.
