Didcot Landfill this week

Some light gull relief.

Caspian Gulls with varying degrees of niceness.

One gorgeous juv/1st w looked textbook, a couple less so and two more with obvious mixed parentage. Indeed, a colour-ringed bird (yellow X480) was from a mixed colony near Leipzig in eastern Germany. It did, however, look pretty good from some angles.

This striking individual certainly behaved and sounded like a Cachinnans.

(Pills for nausea are available from most good pharmacies.)
