The gulls had already assembled in the sandpit off Gibbet Lane when I arrived this morning. It didn't take long to find the first Iceland Gull - number 14!
It was pure white and I could just see it had a pink tip to its bill, so it was most likely a second-winter.

Later on the juvenile seen previously on April 5th and 7th appeared and promptly fell to sleep. Later it was at the A5 Lagoons.
