A Glaucous Gull at Oshamanbe this sfternoon. It was a grey snowy day, not great for birding or bird photography. This species is one of my favourites as it is so evocative of northern latitudes and frozen places.
Other stuff around included Steller’s and White-tailed Eagles, White-winged and Black Scoter, Dunlin, Red-necked Grebe and Black-throated Diver.

Snap! Up early and still dark to see a 2y Glaucous Gull on Mercer’s Lake, Redhill. My third UK sighting, but distant view only in a mainly Herring Gull flock.
Only ever saw 1 in the UK but loads of ’em here…………..
I must be losing my confidence with Gull ID entirely… BUT I like all the banner headline shots I’ve seen so far – the Crossbill looks right where it belongs among the pine cones…
Thanks John, although the crossbill isn’t pin sharp it’s one of my favourite ever shots………….
