Juvenile Caspian Gulls from Erith.

This blog has been a little quiet of late. Fear not however! with last weeks arrival of a handful of juvenile Caspian Gulls (found by Rich Dante and Josh down Erith pier) I have snapped out of my june/july lack of inspiration and caught up with a couple of them over the weekend.

Above and below, a nice pale bird that was present on saturday to an audience of Rich, Richard, Josh and I. A striking bird that I really hope sticks around to see what it looks like in a month or so.

This next bird showed well for Rich and I on Sunday, a small, dark a delicate bird with a nice deep tail band.

Besides the Casp today there was a particular theme to some of the YLGs: White headed and pale underwinged, slightly gingery.
