This is really the main reason for going to Southend Pier for it has to be one of the best locations to photograph this stunning gull up close.
Winter see's the Med Gull numbers increase with wintering birds from the continent.
This visit 3 ringed birds from Belguim, 2 from Germany & 1 from Poland.
1st Winter birds are lovely with beautiful markings that really show in flight !!
A great afternoon !!
