Farmoor Roost - 21st August.

Juvenile Caspian Gull

Juvenile Caspian Gull

Nice pale under-wings.
Excellent roost conditions this evening. There was a juvenile Caspian Gull on F.1 from 20.05 'til dusk. The above video grabs don't do this terrific bird any justice but it actually showed quite well and all the major ID plumage detail is clearly visible here. Caspian Gulls in juv' plumage are rare in the UK with just one previous record from Farmoor. Also a couple of juvenile/1st winter  Mediterranean Gulls
