Horsehay - 4w Caspo!

Buildwas was quiet and I went on to spend an hour at Candles watching distant Gulls, with nothing of note found.  Horsehay pool wasn't much better until this dropped in...

On the water, all the boxes were ticked for Caspian Gull, I had it down as an adult as it cruised up and down mid-pool....



A brief wash and wingflap, revealed a few brown flecks in the upperwing plumage, knocking it down to 4th Winter. It's yet another Caspo for the Shropshire Winter of Gull Content :-) Has there been one like it?


Never mind - as it drifted closer - one serioussly classy Gull :-)



Maybe the last one I will see for a week or so as a busy period of talks on the plant scene looms.....
