Laughing Gull - New Brighton, Wirral.
I actually forgot to post this blog! I went to see the lovely first winter Laughing Gull at New Brighton. I say lovely, because in flight, it most certainly was! The strong contrast between the black tail and white rump was superb. On the deck, it was admittedly not looking it's best mainly because it looked practically hungover!
My second Laughing Gull after the stunning summer adult at Marton Mere in Lancs. I've always been partial to a yank gull, so this one was one not to miss!
Also on site were 8 Purple Sandpipers, which were additional yearticks.
