Brixham Breakwater

With Mike Langman currently watching a Kumlien's Gull resting on steel barge, pics to follow.

Mike's Photos the same 3rd winter bird that had previously been visiting Brixham. In flight it is almost impossible to pick out the grey in the outer primary tips, and perhaps only a hint of any brown in the wing coverts (looking at the pictures) - even zoomed right up on the bird I would have sworn the coverts  were all grey. Browner flecks on lower chest- belly, greenish bill base with blackish marks on upper mandible, nice dark eye on this bird too.
