Calm South East winds 5/6mph and low tide upon arrival ..
Broken cloud with sunny spells and best of all next to nobody about !!
The gulls slowly began to gather to c.120 not exactly fantastic but a little after 4pm and this Caspian made an appearance which is the 4th bird for August ...
Parallel sided bill, long, gently curved upper
Some 2nd gen Scapulars replaced
Solid Terials with white thumbnail tips
Pale under-wing and neck shaul
Finely barred tail and non tapering solid band
Greater coverts seem a bit heavily marked could be within variation or influence from another ...
Upper tail pattern with circular larger outer markings with finer inner
Secondaries giving a nice dark trailing edge to wing
All together a very smart bird ..
