Glaucous Gull

It was blowing a gale today when I stopped off at Shawell on my way to Northampton. Most of the gulls were hunkered  down in a field very close to the village. I stopped briefly and managed to spot a large adult male Caspian Gull amongst them. I didn't hang around, as it was very windy.

I moved to the lagoons where there was only about a 100 gulls on the water and most were mobile due to the wind. I almost left straight the way, but I decided to see if any gulls were on the bank. The gulls were strung out in a line towards the bank and the last one was a mighty juvenile Glaucous Gull.
