Another funny looking gull

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Went to the much neglected (well by me anyway) north bank today, and after pishing a couple of long-tailed tits to close quarters I prepared to sift through the gulls (yeah I know it only leads to trouble). In the distance I could see a largish gull that looked decidedly ‘white winged’ so checked it out through the optics, to see that yes it was white winged but only one of them! Some strange semi-albino nonsense going on?

The shoddy pics are here…

I presume it's a Herring Gull but it ain't half funny lookin'...

Those partial albinos can raise the pulse for a few moments. I've tried to turn them into Thayer's before.
