Iceland Gull in the garden!

3rd November 2020

This morning, this juvenile Iceland Gull spent over an hour in the garden just outside from the window with 2 Grey Wagtail

Shortly after 09.00 , I had a missed call and then a messsage from Graham Gordon ‘Iceland Gull outside the window!’ I threw the cases into the hotel room that I was carring and within seconds I was watching the white-winger only meters away from my window from the house. The sun was reflecting off the pool that it was in, making it differicult to see the gull at first but after throwing some of Graham’s breakfast out, it came too close directly below me. And that’s where it stayed for a short while as it stared at me leaning out of the window throwing the rest of Graham’s breakfast out as far as I could. Eventually, it moved a few metters away to where I could get some better photos of it It stuck around for over an hour and other birders managed to see it from the pirate ship or the north end of the field. Later it was also seen at Porthcressa.

The Iceland Gull worked out where the food was coming from and closly kept an eye on me just meters away below the window that I was leaning out of. Hopefully it will return with the other gulls tomorrow

This Herring Gull was also observing every move I was making by taking avantage of one of the pigs to look at what I was up to in the house

For the last week there have also been 2 Grey wagtail and the odd White and Pied Wagtail

Later on in the day, I had this Firecrest at Mayplole. Yesterday I had 2 Firecrest, Whitethroat and Black Redstart at Pelistry and the Reed Warbler at Newford Duckpond

Both the Greylag and the Russian White-fronted Geese were still in the field opposite Carn Vean Cafe

I forgot to add these pics of a Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull that made two visit to the garden during the first week of August and just like the Iceland Gull, it was just hanging out meters away from my window.

Some interesting pics of the gulls fighting in the garden from August

This Great Black-backed Gull was a regular

I also forgot to put ‘Rosie’ on at roughly the same time. Not looking so rosie then as she’s moulting into winter plumage looking like the other Starling in the garden. Now it’s impossible to identify her from the rest of them

Here’s ‘Rosie’ two months before on the window sill

I love to throw sticks at trees! I also can’t get enough of music! I also blog about my observations on Scilly and wherever I go around the world and what’s sometimes on my mind. I’ve visited over 30 countries and some more times than once. I’ve worked and volunteered in Nepal, USA, Peru, Gambia, Costa Rica, 3x Australia, and refugee camps in Palestine The profile image is one I took while in Palestine of a brave Israeli holding high the Palestinian flag in front of the Israeli Offensive Forces during protests in Belin
