Just like a White winged Gull...

A lunchtime dash down to North shields Fish Quay today soon located the arctic targets.

2 juc Glaucous Gulls showed very well indeed, its just a shame it was nearly dark and sleeting. The fw Iceland Gull was abit more reticent, keeping a comfortable distance. Thirdly the wintering fw Lesser Black Backed Gull was almost trod on and followed me around like Bunty asking for chips!

A worthy dinner time me thinks....

All images have more noise than an Amble beach party...still the birds were good. Glaucous Gull.

Big Chip Thief - Glaucous Gull
I think the Jaws music should be playing on this one and that's just for the big ugly Glauc!

Our friends from the North...
Iceland Gull flyby, scoping chips.

The Iceland Gull is very pale with a face like a black headed gull, very different to the big Glaucous Gulls above.

The young Lesser Black Back, looked a bit sickly...
