Three first-winter CASPIAN GULLS in Stewartby roost this evening

There were three first-winter CASPIAN GULLS in the Stewartby Lake roost this evening - one absolute brute of a bird, a second slightly smaller bird, and a third more petite individual. Other than size, they are all in very similar plumage. All are new in this week.

Also present was an adult Mediterranean Gull, also probably a new passage bird.
