Caspian no.6

Yes another post on gulls.... I make no apologies!

Chris managed to find another! 1w Caspian Gull in York 2 days ago, taking the tally upto 6!

He kindly sent me some photos on to post up

Although hard to see in these photos the bird had a yellow darvic ring on its right leg, showing that it had more than likely came from Poland!

On top of this we seem to have had an influx of white-wingers in the last week with a tally after today of 4-5 Glaucous Gulls all juvs and 3+ Iceland Gulls (4w, 2w and 1+ juvs) also an Adult at Wheldrake the other night increases the York area total by another and completes the age categories for the area, Kumlein's next? That Anglers adult would be nice!

Also got to see this last weekend

Nice bird
