Canvey Island

Saw a distant juvenile Sabine's Gull today on the Thames. Couldn't get any photo but I thought it was a good opportunity to have a look at the shots from Beddington's Sabine's Gulls last October- below. Three together on 9th October 2007- almost twenty years since the first and only other Beddington's Sabs,on the day of the great storm in 1987.
