Caspian Gull Axe Estuary

Very poor pictures of a very lovely first-summer Caspain Gull on the Axe Estuary this morning.  It was briefly on the Estuary before flying to Seaton Marshes where it landed with a gull flock just north of Seaton skate park.  The whole flock were flushed at 09:40 and I had to leave.
