Glaucous Gull

There were two Glaucous and one Iceland Gull at Dogsthorpe Tip at the weekend; all first-winters. The birds are visible from the road when resting next to the tip so I was able to stop for a brief look today. Just the one Glaucous in view - a smaller and less fierce looking creature than the one I photographed 3 weeks ago. Probably a female.

Glaucous Gull Larus hyperboreus

Digiscoped with Canon Powershot A640 and Leica APO77 x20
