Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull at Last

Yesterday evening I was over at Shawell A5 Lagoons and the first juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was in. Last year the first ones arrived on July 4th, so they're a bit late this year. At least 18 YLGs were there last night, mostly adults. The invasion is well underway.

Juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gulls were into double figures and a juvenile Herring Gull was amongst them. It was good to compare all three species in juvenile plumage.
