Iceland Gull - St Ives

Yesterday I managed to catch up with both the Iceland Gull and Glaucous Gull that have been at St Ives for the last few days. The Iceland Gull was on Porthgwidden Beach with a mix of Med Gulls and Black-headed Gulls. It was showing really well on the shore occasionally flying onto the sea when flushed by dog walkers. 

Glaucous Gull also present on the beach behind the lifeboat station but the light was fading by this time

Isles of Scilly - Oct 2013

A few months late but Ive finally managed to blog some images from the Scillies trip in October. Some pretty nice birds, especially the Whites Thrush that I missed! Paul has written a pretty comprehensive trip report which you can read here.
