Glaucous Gull: After missing yesterday's monster of a mega Audouin's Gull, I was eager to give it a stab and set off for first light.
I spotted two different Glaucs and an odd looking 1st winter Iceland. The first Glauc I spotted was a very pale bird and less evenly marked.
This first bird was a classic image of a large front heavy Glauc with its short primaries that seem to stop too early and large broad white wings.
This heavy set bird stood out like a sore thumb among its neighbours and was distinctly different to the first Galuc which was a lot more white.
Other opinions believe its some sort of Herring hybrid one of Richmonds mutant birds!
Despite no sign of the monster Audouin's Gull it was a nice, if a little rainy, grey and damp morning
Note: The last three images were taken on my lousy iPhone through my scope and are not the best.
