There's been a gathering of small Gulls on the field over the Tarka Trail from Wrafton pond for some weeks now, and I have taken to scanning through them in the hope of something interesting, and there has been an occasional Common Gull. Today the flock was considerably smaller, and as I scanned across I said Mediterranean Gull rather distractedly, then realised it was one! A winter plumage adult. Otherwise cold and wet.
