Trench Lock Pool

This morning a 1st-winter Caspian Gull and in the evening roost a juvenile Iceland Gull, not a Glaucous Gull as previously reported. (Kris Webb) More on Scillyspider Blog Here.

Note: There does seem to be some confusion as to the age of this Caspian Gull, as today's bird has been reported as being the same bird as yesterday's 2nd winter! More to follow I'm sure...........
