Iceland Gull At Last

Had a text from Bun soon after midday, to inform me of an Iceland Gull on the Estuary. So naturally, I went straight to it!!

What a cracking bird, a real white one too! As you can see from the pics it's a nice second winter bird (my first of this age here!), and is surely the same bird that was seen here two weeks ago by one lucky visiting birder - that was also a very white second winter. Just makes you wonder where it has been for all this time! Anyway....

If you can't find it you need to go to Specsavers!

What a beast!
