Caspian Gull Watermead CP South 12th October 2009.




Hi all, here is a couple of digishots of the adult Caspian Gull at Watermead CP South yesterday afternoon.
I first saw it on the largest pit next to the car park and then on the large "sprint" building roof with other Lesser BB Gulls, before flying off north.
I relocated the Casper later on at Birstall Meadows as the gulls came into pre roost at this site at around 5.00pm.
Although its not a major rarity I think this is probably the first record for the Soar Valley?
* Foot note* As Steve Lister thinks this bird is not a Caspian Gull I just wondered what other people think of the above Gull, I look forward to your comments..........................
