Glaucous Gull Leyton Tip

 

A last minute decision to check the gulls at the tip this afternoon and I got lucky. The first bird I saw even before I had got my bins and Camera out was this juv Glaucous Gull.

Unbelievable really, it’s just one day under a year since I saw one here on Jan 29th 2017 and before that there hadn’t been one for 20 odd years! Photography and views through a tight linked fence but not the worst in the world.

A cat and a grey heron turned up just as i snuck inside the fencing, the combination of all that flushed the birds. Below is a shot of the rubbish pile itself, not exactly pitsea land fill but still attracts the birds.
