I have still not seen very many of these interesting and recently-split gulls. My friend Kevin 'Pinky' Du Rose always goes on about how distinctive they are. So, I went looking for the one he had found independently of fellow confident gullster Josh Jones, yesterday. It was a first-winter at Dogsthorpe Tip. Initially the bird wasn't there, but then there it was standing out like a sore thumb from the other larger gulls.
