At least 5 iceland gulls on show this morning. A second winter bird that was seen on the 7th Feb and 4 juvenile/ 1st winter birds were present. The iceland gull with the damaged tail that was at Prescot reservoirs on wednesday was here, showing its missing central tail feather. 3 adult yellow legged gulls also but no sign of any glaucous gulls today. An adult med gull was on pumphouse pool.
The lesser pecker showed briefly early afternoon and a look on richmond bank later produced a couple of this mornings iceland gulls, raven and a female merlin shot through.
The 2nd winter iceland gull seen over richmond bank.
This rather large, stocky bird (probably a male) and looking short winged had us thinking glaucous gull but slender bill and round head shape makes this an Iceland gull
