A couple of strange gulls over the farm today including one I think I recognise from Essex also featured on page 82 of Birding World Volume 22:2. This bird (pic one) is now in 2nd winter plumage and gained a dark primary on its right wing and we saw it in Essex earlier this year. Am I right?
The second bird (pic 2) is another leucistic Herring Gull.
Been a strange few days for gulls. Opened Birdwatch page 57 this month and saw the contents of my freezer:

Steve Arlow and another essex birder have confirmed that this (pic 1) is indeed the same bird.
