Spurn’s juvenile Caspian Gull

Friday 17th August 2012

by Martin and Pete Wragg

Nice one Pete Wragg. Pete sent a couple of photos of a juvenile Caspian Gull he found last Friday from the Chalk bank hide. First juvenile for the Spurn area. He said he was partly inspired by posts on the Birding Frontiers blog. So hopefully some more will be found!

I (MG) had a lovely juvenile loafing off Flamborough Head in late August several years ago so reaching this far north as juveniles is not new – just (as ever) overlooked.
