Caspian Gull ~ 1st. W ~ Dungeness, Kent - 17.08.14

Tuesday 19 August 2014

The first Caspian Gull of the season at Dungeness, a big bird probably a male in post-juvenile moult ..
Notably the lesser coverts are dropped and a few scapulars have been replaced ..
And later a 2nd bird !!

Caspian Gull ~ 1st. W

A very neat tail pattern as well, if it over-winters keeping track of this bird should be fairly easy ...
