Broadsands

Watching the Gulls with Andy Plumb this morning was productive with 12 Mediterranean Gulls 11 adults and 1 fw plus a very showy juv/fw Iceland Gull different from the dark bodied and billed bird two days ago and not the Brixham/Berry Head bird from Jan/Feb (see comparison shots below). There have been at least 3 different juv/fw birds in Torbay so far this winter. video clip link here: https://youtu.be/KodL5vtULFw
