A Saturday morning spent at Pitsea produced a fairly meagre scattering of gulls - a little disappointing after Rich Bonser
had visited over the two previous Saturdays and enjoyed excellent numbers, including several Caspian Gulls. Highlights were limited to a tame fox, the returning leucistic Great Black-backed Gull (and, incidentally, its normal-looking sibling for its first time at this site) and 10+ Yellow-legged Gulls. With tipping activity at a minimum, we'd called it a day by late morning.
A couple of adult Yellow-legged Gulls among the detritus - quite amusing how well camouflaged they can be

'Big White' the Norwegian Great Black-backed Gull - back again!
A surprisingly smart Red Fox - you tend to see really mangled individuals here
