More Gulls

2nd winter Black Headed. Adult plumage on wings and
body with red legs and bill but lacking white tips on primaries.
1st winter B.H. with juv markings on wings, yellow legs and
bill and incomplete black headbands.
2nd winter B.H. with faint headbands no white tips
on primaries
1st winter B.H.

A quick look at Soil Hill proved fruitless with now heavy rain and fog closing in so shot back down to Wibsey to try get some more gull photos. Unfortunately it was damp and misty there with limited Black Headed and no Commons.
Last day off tomorrow so hoping we dont get the snow thats promised.

All I have to do now is find where I can get some of the big gulls.

I was planning on Swales Moor this morning to see if any big gulls were passing through but it looks very foggy up there! Glad I stayed at home as just had a Brambling below the garden feeders!

Wise choice there Dave, I also was grounded with thick fog, heavy drizzle and everything was encased in solid ice. Even the rain was freezing as it hit the floor, everywhere was treacherous.
My penalty for stopping in was I got to clean all the windows inside, at least I could keep an eye on the feeders but not as lucky as you, nice one on the Brambling.
