Local birding: Iceland Gull - Fishmoor Res, Lancs - 4th Nov 2008.

An Iceland Gull, considered 1stw, appeared in the roost at dusk. The videograbs above taken on 'Nightvision' at distance at c17:00. It was particularly pleasing to record this bird early in the 'winter Gull season' following the closure of Withnell Landfill Site in June.... a traumatic event which I have yet to fully come to terms with!! Adult Med Gull also roosted.
