Glaucous Gull - 3rd. W ~ Dungeness, Kent - 19.01.13

Monday, 21 January 2013

Still to be found near the fishing boats at Dungeness, Kent and looking marginally less scruffy now is the 3rd. winter Glaucous Gull, which looks better in flight than when resting ...

In-flight the brown-tinged lesser, greater coverts and tail show well.
Yellow iris is quite striking.

Hoping it sticks around for the partial moult, nice to see what it will look like  replacing the head and body feathers ..

Glaucous Gull ~ 3rd. W

  








Note:   Must of cut it's foot as there is blood on the tail.
