Elsham, 17th April 2013

A good day of spring gulling nearly got forgotten amongst a busy couple of weeks at work, but a few checks of the gull fields on the Lincolnshire Wolds back on 17th April, I got the set!
Despite a constant stream of mainly Herring Gulls SW all day, there were still c1500 settled in the fields, and late morning I came across another 2cy Caspian Gull, making a least 4 different individuals through here in the last few weeks.
Lunchtime down on the carrs produced another few hundred gulls sleeping it off, and a 2cy Glaucous Gull had joined them.
Finally, back up on the wolds before I left in the afternoon, and a 2cy Iceland Gull made a brief appearance before heading off into the wind. All very nice.
Back home, there was something naggingly familiar about the Casp, and looking through previous photos, I reckon its been here before - 4 months ago! Certainly very similar...
