A showy youngster

During the afternoon of October 15th, the 'North Kent popcorn twins', Mick and Richard, enticed this first winter Caspian Gull down onto Dungeness beach. It was bearing a red Polish ring. For an hour it paraded in front of us, allowing close examination. Why not share in our good fortune and take a look - it's quite a striking bird.

It looks rather "tidier" than your normal juvenile gull, very intricate patterning as well

They are quite striking when you get your eye-in Simon, although some of them are easier than others.
