No picture as I was driving, but today I saw a gull with a full black head a red beak only saw it as it flew in front of the car. Do Black headed Gulls or Med Gulls ever have a full black head this time of Year? I always thought this was strictly summer/breeding plumage Opinions would be appreciated.

not sure about med gulls Paul but theres a few black headed gulls knocking around the football pitches south of the bents park with almost a full black hood, there was also one on the marine park lake mid december with complete black(brown) head.

Anyone tell me what the two ducks are in front of the headless Cormorants I'm sure they are the ever growing population of Strange Mallards. I've sent this picture as it gives a comparison in size to other birds thanks in advance

You're right Paul, they are dodgy Mallards, or Mucky Ducks as I like to call them!

Sid, your Gulls are all the same species (Black Headed) and you're right about the juvenile bill.

Yep its a Shortie. They have the yellow eyes, Longies have orange eyes, which is good to know when you see them as close as this!!!!!

Thanks Jason. Hopefully I can see a long eared owl soon - I know they are present close to where I see the SEO's.

Anyone know what this bird is found in Trow this morning. I think it has probably been brought up out of the rocks by a dog as it had a very fishy/salty smell to it.

Approx 8-9" long, black with white under and large bill similar to a Puffin.

I initially thought it was an Oystercatcher chick, then maybe a Cormorant or Razorbill chick, then just gave up altogether.

Regards

John
