Brixham Kumlien's Gull




3w Kumlien's Gull photographed in Brixham (inside the marina) on Sunday by Tom Whiley. Note the grey pigmentation in the primaries, dark-looking eye and traces of immaturity in wing coverts. Head shape appears less rounded than in glaucoides. This is the first Devon record in nearly twenty years!
