Trench Pool - Yellow-legged Gull

Whilst the Velvet Scoter is clearly the star attraction at Trench Pool at the moment, there's always potential for a decent Gull or two here! A modest gathering of 60 Lesser Black Backs, a handful of Herring Gulls and 500+ Black heads didn't exactly get the pulse racing but a couple of adult Yellow-legged Gulls dropped in all too briefly! Here's the one which sat on the water after bathing....




And then had the decency to fly towards me :-)


Flap, flap, flap.....




Potential for a Caspo (or better) here as winter progresses.....
