Priorslee and Candles, 18th March 2013

Once again an afternoon visit to the lake produced a few hundred large gulls, and this time the latest 2cy Iceland Gull was amongst them, looking remarkably small with a smooth whitish saddle across the upper mantle.
A dash over to the tip then followed, and whilst c1,000 gulls stood in the field (90% LBBs), a few hundred fed on the tip in the drizzle, including a big 4cy male Caspian Gull. Unfortunately it soon flew off north by itself, and I headed home, perplexed by the lack of supporting cast lately - no michs today for example.
