Another Med - or the Same?

25th February - Steve R had reported an adult Med Gull from the pit this morning.  I paid a quick visit mid afternoon and was surprised to find presumably the same bird still present.  It had a partial hood, quite dark on the back of the head and a blood red bill, so sounds very like the description of the recent bird at Hedgerley.  It might also be the same bird seen intermittently since mid January, but since these birds look different almost daily at this time of year, it is hard to be sure.

A poor record is shown below, just before it sat down, put its head in its back and a Common Gull stood in front of it, never to show clearly again while I was watching!
