Argentatus Predominate

11th January - another quick afternoon visit.  The only point of note today was the predominance of large argentatus gulls with only a few argenteus birds amongst the Herring Gulls.  Some of the adults are already beginning to lose some of their winter head streaking, whilst there were a couple of juveniles still in fairly dark juvenile plumage with only a few replaced scaps - another poor record shot of one of these (bad light and too distant at this time of year for my meagre digiscoping skills!)
