Gull Day Highlight

North Cheshire

Probably the most popular bird to learn from on Saturdays’ Gull Masterclass was this 1st winter (2nd cal. year) Yellow-legged Gull seen both at the tip and Richmond Bank giving excellent on the ground and in-flight views. The full variety of gull taxa seen was really good. More soon.

Do you know why it is one?

    HI MARTIN -I’ll have a go – White face with contrasting heavy black bill / face mask / Slight pale windows in inner primaries / dark chocolate brown primaries showing contrast to greater coverts / extensive black tail bar contrasting very well with white tail base / dark secondary bar and overall freshness to upper wing indicating renewed feathers. Anchor markings on scapulars
