Caspian gull: I was always hoping to pick up my first Caspo myself, I have spent hours scanning over the flocks at Richmond Bank and Moore NR.

I was also hoping my first to be a full Adult, but I am happy to see a 1st winter bird so close to home and a first for Wales by all accounts.

What stood out for me was its extremely pale pear shaped head and neck, with its small dark set back pea-sized eye!
