  1. A nice account Richard...............Whilst I make no bones about none of our Gulls being "interesting" (you wouldn't have it any other way) it takes a skill to pull out one individual gull flying in amongst hundreds of others and be able to distinguish slight and subtle plumage details, hence determining one species from another. I cannot do it with images plonked in front of me never mind out in the field (or in your case beach) There are only a handful of people that I know capable of doing this, Mick certainly being one of them. Keep up the good work as the very little knowledge I have of Gulls has been gained from blogs such as yours and Mick's. Regards Steve A.
