It was a memory card that I'd previously tried in my new camera and it didn't work right. Today I was using my old camera that has never let me down before and neither has the memory card, so I'm not best pleased.
This juvenile was a uniform tea colour - all its markings had faded. Its eyes were dark, so it is a juvenile.
Hopefully I'll catch up with it again.
There's still lots of gulls at the site at present. There has been a large arrival of Black-headed and Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Caspian Gulls are quite scarce at present although a first-winter was present last Saturday.
