Priorslee lake - Iceland DUO !!!

I'd hoped for one but ended up with TWO Iceland Gulls at lunchtime today :-) :-) Here's the sequence of events....

A lucky break, finding the 1st Winter Iceland Gull within seconds of arrival......



A better angle with less other Gulls in the way!







Eventually a wingflap and off it flew......







A fly past!



As it proceeded to spend time in the water......



After watching it more distantly on the water, I can't remember who 'called it' but suddenly there was a second bird on the water!




Wow, angelic or what - a 'ghostly white' 2nd Winter Iceland Gull.....





Brief flaps and flight onto the ice





Preening on the ice.....










Where it was till present as I made my way back to work - a lucky break or what!
