Gone to the Bank.

An unexpected day off today so decided to spend it down at Richmond Bank. Most surprised to be the only one there today, though it does seem to have been well watched this week. Arrived just after 10.30 and put in a good 5 hour stint. No sooner was i set up a juv/1w Glaucous Gull was sat out in front of me. Next up was a 2w Iceland Gull followed later on by a 1w bird. 5 Yellow-legged Gulls were logged though the numbers were probably higher, and  i couldn't confidently pick out a Caspian Gull although a small Herring/Caspian type was around for much of the day (my knowledge is very limited). As i was leaving Paul Wren was searching for the Glaucous Gull and thankfully picked out the only Med Gull i saw all day.
