Gull Heaven

Its great to see two species of gull that are fairly uncommon on my home turf and at close range. The 1st winter Iceland Gull has been visiting Scarborough Harbour most days now for just over a week. Beautiful pale cream bird which sticks out amongst the Herring Gulls on the filleting shed roof.

The Mediterranean Gulls are still present at Holbeck Car Park and the adult birds are now gaining their beautiful black hoods, three adults and two 1st winter birds where present recently, but it will not be long now before the birds will leave Scarborough for the spring.
