© Mike WeedonThis bird was the first white-winged gull we have had locally this winter. It was at the tip on 11.1.09. It can be aged as a second-winter by its generally pale, blotchy plumage, pink bill with darker tip and its pale iris. Iceland Gulls are smaller and gentler looking, with much smaller (generally darker) bill and long wings.

Plenty of gulls around at the moment, though currently a case of quality rather than quantity. Lots of these dark argentatus-type Herrings about this winter, presumably they have come from somewhere a bit further north than here.
