Glaucous Gull, Tanholt Pits

This adult Glaucous Gull is the third (or fourth/fifth) to be recorded this winter in the PBC area - an excellent total. A very small individual (presumably a female), this bird was initially though to be an Iceland Gull but structure, bulk and short primary projection lean towards Glaucous. This bird is not much larger than a Herring Gull, and initially fooled the observer...
