This was a regular visitor to the garden during the snow back in Jan, definitely worth putting apples out to tempt them in.
You can also spot its been ringed, top of a white ring showing in the snow. As usual taken through a not so clean window.

And its a big brute too Tony, I was looking for something smaller.
I'd seen there was a Glaucous Gull there, Jim, so I was wondering if you'd seen it.
When I have been up I have been looking out for it Nige, but I called up today for a couple of hours and parked on the main car park, I had a look but never saw it so had a walk part round the lake and came back after an hour and half and was just about to leave when I saw it on the slip way were they feed all the ducks and it was bigger then what I thought it was the Black headed gull were half its size if not smaller.
Some of its friends on the railings and there are a lot of them here.
