Wiseman's Bridge- Gulls

There has been a reasonable flock at Wiseman's Bridge for the past few days but it was the largest I have ever seen it today. The flock spread from Wiseman's Bridge across the bay to the far east end of Amroth. Rough counts: about 2000 Herring Gulls, 40+ GBB, 70 Black-heads but only 3 LBB. The highlight was 1, possible 2 1st winter Iceland Gulls close inshore near the Wiseman's Bridge Inn. the latter bird was very pale so couldn't fully rule out a leucistic gull. 6 Red-breasted Mergansers were close inshore at Amroth
