More gull action to be had at Burton Mere with this great little gull making an appearance.
This was an adult in winter plumage, see the little black bill, black spot behind the ear and no black cap.
This picture shows its white wing tips really well and the dark under side of its wings which are all distinctive characteristics of this the smallest gull in the world.
