Ten Species of gull in one day.

What a day!! It's certainly the first time I've ever seen 10 species of gull in one day. I must admit I was a little disappointed I did not see the recently reported Kumliens gull but what compensation in the form of a 1st winter caspian gull. It was great to get a photo of the caspian gull with the juv iceland gull close by.I think this may be the 5th different iceland gull this year. The juv glaucous gull is a new one although this has been around for a week making it five different glaucs this winter for me. 3 adult and 2 2nd winter yellow legged gulls. Last but not least the 2nd summer Med gull showed well as did the 5 common species of gull making a grand total of 10 species
