Horsehay and Candles - more White wingers!

If yesterday was a cracking day, today was even better! An unproductive Priorslee lake saw me heading off to Horsehay where Iceland 'Cutie Pie' had been showing well for Tom most of the morning!

He had gone over to Candles and guess what, the Iceland dropped back into Horsehay a minute or so after arriving!




Angelic wingflap....


A text from Tom had me starting the engine, a Glauc was showing :-) The gulls are constantly mobile of course and the only white winger evident on arrival was 'ugly' Iceland!


Eventually, one of the Glaucous Gull came into view and even better, it was the pale bird I was hoping for! Our first views were simply wings showing above the seething mass of foraging Gulls!

We know you're in there.......



Eventually it showed much better. Always distant sadly....



But I'll settle for this, for new.......


Three white wingers today then :-) Tom had FOUR with yet another Glauc at Candles.....
