Sure enough it was a 1st winter (2k) Glaucous Gull proudly sporting a ring. I didn't have any bread to attract it even closer although I did toss out a Werthers Original but this didn't seem to be to anyones taste. I managed to take a picture of the bird with my phone through the bins. I-phones are not best suited for this but I must say the result could have been worse.
On the way back to the office I took a detour via the church favoured by the Peregrine and sure enough she(?) was sitting on top of the spire preening.
Feeling rather satisfied I finished my lunch break on a high with a celebratory McDonalds! Does life get better....
