Caspian Gull ~ 2nd. W ~ Dungeness, Kent - 06.11.16

Sunday, 6 November 2016

Fairly calm North-westerly wind and a good number of gulls gathered on the beach and constantly growing until what seems to be the norm of late, a gull gets caught up in a fisherman's line ... It totally freaks them out when another bird is entangled like this and they all disperse from the area, literally c.500 birds to none !!
It took about 45 minutes to start them off again and even longer to settle them down as it makes them really nervous ...
Anyway nothing of interest until late on when after they had settled in came a 2nd. W Caspian Gull ..

Also later in failing light a Adult Caspian Gull came in briefly and the wing pattern showed it to be a different bird than last weeks adult ..
