Yellow-legged Gull  Larus michahellis - 1st winter, 2nd calendar year

Photographed at Radipole Lake, Weymouth, Dorset, UK on January 14th 2013

I have been looking through some more of the photos I took at Radipole on Monday morning (Jan. 14th) - a bird I identified at the time as possible 1st cycle Yellow-legged Gull, and then afterwards - rather brainlessly as Lesser BB, turns out, after some discussion, to most likely be the Yellow-legged reported there the day before.

Thanks to Ian on Out and About for alerting us about this (?) bird the evening before, and to Andy on the forum for changing my mind back to michahellis.
