Glaucos Gull

At the Gann this afternoon, took off from the low water mark & flew off  towards Dale Fort & kept going, initial thoughts were 1st Winter but having checked the guide it may have been a 2nd W as it looked a dirty white as opposed to  a juvenile / 1st W at this time of year.
Other birds there, 7-8 Turnstones, 10 RP`s,  12 Barwits, as many as 12 Redshank scattered across the site, 1 Greenshank.
The footpath across Pickleridge has been reinstated and repaired after "Ophelia" but the car park is still a mess. 4x4 recommended!
