Glaucous, Caspian and Yellow-legged Gull

A great little day with Dave, Christian, Angus, Tomos and Glenn checking through the gulls and checking out 100 acre and the mounds.

Sightings HERE and a few pictures below: 

 Juvenile Glaucous Gull- a very large individual. Found by the Dave. The first one this year at the farmlands.
 We had two Caspian/Caspian-type Gulls (Here's one from yesterday, which looked similar to one we saw today) 
 Caspian-type Gull (right of centre) The second bird today.
 Third-winter Yellow-legged Gull (left hand bird).
 Juvenile/First-winter Herring Gull, the dark large bird suggests origins from high latitudes . Also had a couple of adult type argentatus. 
 First-winter Common Gull, the heavy streaking on the head (including the crown and ear coverts), the sparsely marked upper tail coverts, restricted black on outer retrix and relatively pale underwing (below) indicates nominate canus.
