1st summer Caspian Gull

Not Easy

Thanks to Steve Arlow, of ‘Birders Playground’ here is a 1st summer Caspian Gull  he photographed in Essex last weekend (21st July). He comments:

“It was small and rather short legged so presumably a female but note the extremely long neck when the bird was alert”

These are not easy, but can be done with practice.This time of year is good learning ground with possibilities such as juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls, immature Baltic Gulls and Caspian Gulls of all kinds of ages to look out for and practice on.
