Not much sign of the “mild conditions” forecast for Saturday nor any sign of any migrants! There were however a number of interesting gulls still around the Dungeness peninsular.
One of two juvenile Glaucous Gulls seen.
A brief appearance of a 3rd winter Yellow legged Gull.
In a brief window of better light, a really sleek looking adult Caspian Gull arrived. A very handsome looking bird it’s dark eye giving it an immaculate appearance.
An appearance reminiscent of a large Common Gull.
Legs of this bird appeared richly coloured as they can be this time of year.
Below the classic Caspian wing pattern, with long grey/white tongues cutting deeply into the black primaries, large white tip to p10, dark markings up to p5.
