Yellow-legged Gull at Wiseman's Bridge

I didn't see any white-winged gulls at Amroth/Wiseman's Bridge early this morning, but there was an adult Yellow-legged Gull at Wiseman's Bridge.  As Toby has reported, there are good numbers of large gulls in the area at the moment and they are being attracted by the availability of large numbers of sea animals.  These are being churned up in the surf and deposited among the pebbles, a bit like the situation at Newgale a couple of years back.  The gulls appear to be feeding well on a ready supply of whelks, cockles, razor shells and starfish, presumably brought in during the storm last week.
