2 Yellow-legged GULL at Morning Point

26th July 2020

This juvenile Yellow-legged Gull showed at very close range superbly at Morning Point

After a late breakfast, I made the five minute walk to Morning Point. As there are some 100 Herring Gulls parked outside my bedroom window throughout the day, it was no surprise to find a small group on the water at the point. However, As usual, a large number of gulls appear from nowhere when you start throwing bread out. Some of the Herring and a 1st summer Greater black-backed Gull, I recognise from in the garden. My first juvenile Lesser black-backed Gull of the year flew straight through and 3 juvenile Herring Gull settled to my left on the wall I was standing on. A few minutes later I looked to my left to see a cracking juvenile Yellow-legged Gull also on the wall. Where did that come from? It flew below onto some rocks where it continued to show well. It was while I was taking some photos of it on the rocks, that I briefly looked up to see another Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull move straight through. At the same time, Bobby Dawson was watching 3 juvenile YLG on Tresco. However the highlight was a Roseate Tern found by Joe Pender off Green Island also on Tresco.

This is the second juvenile Yellow-legged Gull that I just caught as it flew straight through

The Black-headed Gull flying at Morning Point is the very same individual that was only a meter from the bedroom window earlier that morning

And ‘Rosie’ the Starling that first looked like a juvenile Rose-coloured Starling a month or so ago, although still paler, she is now staring to appear like her friends she hangs out with
