Oh noooooo! You are kidding me! Seriously?
Would you mind explaining why? I'm using the Collins guide... and it seemed (or so I thought!) to fit 2nd W Casp. The slanted head angle, long beak, full chest...
Thanks for any help you can offer!!!
OK - thanks for explaining it!! I'm fairly new to seawatching... hard to find much info on learning the different birds as most of the guides I have aren't too helpful for ID'ing these birds flying past a mile away on a hazy sea!
I’d love these divers... especially the one on the right to be BT divers... but:

pictures taken yesterday!

Seen today in Kent, SE UK.
Thanks for any help you can offer

Thanks for any help you can offer.
I’m 99% sure that...
I posted this yesterday on the Gull ID page... but looks like that section doesn't get too much traffic!!!
Would it be ok to get clarification on whether this is a Yellow legged or LBB gull? I suspect the latter due to its darker colour.... but I’m hoping for the former!

im trying to learn more about gulls, so please let me know your reasons! Thanks so much for your help
Anyone got any ideas what this might be? Spotted in Kent, UK this week. Was hanging around in the same area as Wigeon, teal, tufteds. Could it be a hybrid or is it leucistic?
Thank you for your help
