There were a Scilly record of up to 8 Iceland Gull at Morning Point today including these 2 juveniles in battle! There was also a juvenile Glaucous gull present at the same time!
In four days I've had a total of 4 Glaucous and 9 Iceland Gull on Scilly!
Also today, George Kershaw went for a walk up the north end of Tresco and relocated the 1st winter female SNOWY OWL!
Now I'm telling you, there are a crazy number of gull photos coming up if you continue scrolling down and with the gale force NWW and drizzle through out the day, the light was very poor.

These 2 juvenile Iceland Gull were at Morning Point yesterday. The darker juvenile, that's been in the area for the last week, took on the new arrival that turned up yesterday.
