Richmond bank,
A very wet morning but there was still plenty to see at the bank today. A male wheatear was still on the path and a stonechat was in the scrub. A juv glaucous gull today was a different bird from the glaucous gull I had last Wednesday and on several previous occasions. Todays bird was larger, bigger billed , and a darker colour than the recent glaucous gull. After I had left the 2 Glaucs were seen on the bank at the same time. An adult and 2 1sts yellow legged gulls today also.
