Rainy day at Portland

With the onset of rain not long after arrival had to settle for a drive down to the Common to see if any Gulls were about.

Intermedius with Herring and graellsii. Looked a bit more interesting through bins appearing darker and a bit slimmer than it actually was. It has got an attenuated rear end however this is exaggerated by the worn tertials


Size wise not a lot of difference. Certainly seems to have a smaller eye though.

This Med also taken from the car, at the end of the track that follows the eastern edge of the Common to the sea
