Got some shots of two of the Med Gulls that have been seen in recent days along the foreshore. With hundreds of pairs now nesting in the south east and a fair few in coastal Essex, this species will only become more regular.

A scaly, fawn headed juvenile but still showing that droopy be albeit black
