Laughing Gull: Isn't it brilliant when the planets aline and a little bit of luck comes your way!
When the news broke a few days ago that this bird was at New Brighton I was gutted I missed it due to work commitments, but today I had a pre-booked day off and got some superb views of this cracking bird.
I arrived just after 8.30am thinking I would put that little bit more effort in to this bird and try and pick it up along Perch Rock, but knowing that the best time would be high tide.
This is what I was waiting for!
In stark contrast to when it was flying around, as it looked fine.
Once we finished the bird decided to go for some more bread and spent the next half an hour or so flying around the lake.
