Patch Gulls 23/2/13

After the boredom of the period between winter and spring started to set in, I decided to go for a seawatch in the hope of a migrant or two. Among 6 common scoter, 15 gannets and 30 fulmars, was a juvenile Glaucous Gull flying north, nice surprise to the seawatch! 

My photos of the glauc from North Shields.

Then after a text from Alan Curry this afternoon, I went flying back down to the South Bay just in time to catch up with 4 Adult Little Gulls with the Black-Heads. Showed amazingly well, down to 3 feet at times! Also saw the adult Med Gull.

Great Birds.
