Second-winter ICELAND GULL at Stewartby this afternoon

The bird was with a group of around 30 Great and Lesser Black Backed and Herring Gulls around the centre of the lake. I watched it for 5 minutes between 13.40 and 13.45, went to phone David Kramer and when I returned a couple of minutes later, it had gone. The gulls were commuting to and from the tip however, so there's a decent chance that it might be in the roost later.

Also present were the two Scaup, both just of the sailing club (Tony P)
