Iceland Gull at Sizewell
Having to visit Broomfield Hospital at Chelmsford on Monday 13th January. I was able to quickly visit Sizewell early on, as I walked onto the beach by the rig not, a lot was seen but at the second southerly post with a yellow triangle on it and several Cormorants perched on the top, loads of Gulls were wheeling around here c120 and amongst them I spotted the excellent pale biscuit coloured immature 1st winter Iceland Gull all seemingly flying around anti- clockwise around the post, the Iceland Gull was showing its white primaries. The Iceland Gull then settled onto the sea on the left hand/ northern end of the group that settled on the sea. It then flew towards me and flew right over the beach and south at around 9.20am.
