Calvert landfill - 15/3/09 (Note that there is no general access to tip - strictly private)

These are two of very pale first-year ICELAND GULLS seen recently in main roost. Neither is the darker brown individual seen recently. For various reasons suspected 3rd white one on site today but could only nail down 2 together.

These photographs weren't as easy to get as images suggest!! Most of the time gulls on rubbish well out of range and had to wait for groups to be spooked onto pit. The 2 were together for only 5 mins
before off again. Pics taken at scope 40x/ camera max 3 zoom in night roost would be poor
pics but these taken in good light.
