Kumliens Gull

After last weeks unsuccessful attempt for the Kumliens Gull at Barmston, I had better luck yesterday.

The tide was on its way out and there were plenty of mussels to feed on.

At first there was no sign but I walked north for around 500 yards and then almost on cue it flew from the south and landed almost right in front of me.

For the next hour or so it performed nicely feeding with other gulls and a few common waders.

The near gale force wind and freezing temperatures just added to the fun!
