Kumlien's Gull - 2nd.W ~ Admiralty Pier, Dover Harbour, Kent ... 18.02.12

Tuesday, 21 February 2012

Plan A .. This was to go to Southend Pier for Med Gull's luckily Kev heard that it was closed for the weekend, apparently a fishing boat crashed in to the pier !!
Yeah because you can't see a 1.3km pier can you !!!!
Plan B .. Didn't really have a plan B, but having not quite seen enough gull's of late, we thought it would be rude not to go and see the beauty at Dover Harbour ...
Rocked up at about 08:30, overcast & dull so up went the iso's, walked out no more than 50 metre's and there it was just hanging in the strong wind and updraft from the pier. Our target was a Kumlien's Gull - 2nd. W, it and all the others were putting on a flying display in the updraft, so down went some bread and in came in Kumlien's.
The action was crazy !!
