Little Gull off Seafield
I have seen Little Gulls off Seafield a couple of times before at this time of year, but they have always been out at the sewage outfall a mile offshore. This morning, with the strong onshore winds whipping the spray over the seawall, there was one close in feeding with the Black-headed Gulls in the surf. Sadly it did not stay long but headed East along the coast battling against the wind.
A real beauty in my opinion... with a nice rosy tint coming through on the breast.
The initial view - the Little Gull being smaller, and flickering in flight with pale upperparts and dark underwings.
