Glaucous Gull - Fishmoor Res, Blackburn - 27th Nov 2007.

Given the demise in the numbers of the larger Gull species in the past two winters due to seemingly very effective bird scaring measures at the local landfill sites, this 1stw Glaucous Gull was a very welcome sight at the local Gull roost from 15:30. The regular adult Med Gull also roosted.

As wonderful a scope that the Leica Apo 62mm is, its times like this in dull, fading, late November light when you just wish you had a larger objective lens to obtain better quality videograbs. I knew I should have put the Leica 77mm in the car boot as well!
