Three first-winter CASPIAN GULLS

First one:

The second one:



And the third (on the right; the left one is probably the same as in the first photo):


Third bird on the left with a 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull on the right:

Here are the other pics of yestarday's CASPIAN GULLS. Three different 1st winter birds then - all with quite distictive and easy to see characters (see above).
Photos visible here too.

Local patch: a MARSH TIT in the garden was of interest this morning. In the last two days there were a few Red Admirals on the wings too - a consequence of the mild and sunny weather we are having now. Not right very common to see butterflies on Christmas day!
