Brixham Breakwater

What was almost certainly the 3rd winter Kumliens Gull was sat on the water within the outer harbour when I first arrived at 1540hrs. The position of the bird plus the strong sunlight made it difficult to see the primary tips. However the bill pattern and the streaking appeared to fit the bird seen on previous visits. Although 2 others present never saw this bird get off the water it was never relocated but what was almost certainly the same bird followed in a trawler showing a similar tail pattern to the Kumliens a bit later on at 1700hrs
