Kumliens Gull

After dom's fantastic gull session at rainham's stone barges, i was eager for an early start to try and connect with some white-winger action! and wasn't long before the 2w Kumlien's Gull showed well to a group of us eager beaver's.

On the deck you could see the dark centred primaries and on preening revealing the dark upper tail band, before a grey heron spooked all the gull's thus providing us with a great fly bye.

Also seen was a first winter Iceland Gull on the river and a Frigate past ( unfortunately this was a boat species ) and also surprised to find two Ruff roosting on the barges with several redshank.
