European Herring Gull
Not sure of the age of this bird, best guess 2nd-winter.

Once again I'm way behind on my browsing, and need to catch up with what you've all been doing tomorrow morning. Meanwhile, thank you for your comments, and stay safe and well.

That's a right fine flight capture you have here John. I don't do gulls so can't help you with the aging I'm afraid.

Many thanks for showing him to us my friend.
