Priorslee lake - Adult Iceland!!

I've been waiting for one of these a long time, any White Winged Adult would do......

A brief lunchtime call (with not another birder in sight) seemed destined to be a blank affair apart from a couple of adult Yellow-legged Gulls, that is until 1.30 when this splendid 'new' Gull dropped in :-) Wow, on size, bill and with that long primary projection, had to be an adult Iceland Gull





Problem was, it was never destined to stay. A quick wash.....



And a few wingflaps.....



Then, five minutes later it was goodbye!



Such a pristine looking Gull (how about an adult Glauc next?)





With a patch tick pair of Grey Partridge at VP on Tuesday (thanks Martyn) following last Sunday's Red-neck, it's been quite a week!
