Caspian Gull, 22nd April 2011, Andy Lawson.
1st Summer. Note the very pale, long, thin bill with black tip, the long tibia and milky coloured legs, large body with domed, small head with a beady black eye high on the head, the gingery greater coverts devoid of vermiculations and hanging rear belly. Underparts typically gleaming white with dark looking spots (not splodges). Wing coverts are very bleached on ths bird as is typical of many gulls at this time of year.
