Iceland & Glaucous Gulls - North Shields Fish Quay
The number of White-winged Gulls has been increasing further North in places like Shetland, so it was only a matter of time till a few spilled further south - well North actually - North Shields Fish Quay.
A look this morning revealed nothing. The tide was out, so poorly timed. Wind on a few hours to 3pm and, with a high tide and trawlers returning, there were plenty of Gulls including 3 Iceland and 1 Glaucous.
