    Nice catch, but it’s a Herring Gull, if it wasa Pacific he’d be a long way from home!

  • Thank you Jon xx

    Nice sharp capture Lynn. Further to the debate above, it’s a herring gull, and the red tip on the beak is for the chicks to peck at when they want food which the parents regurgitate. It acts as a marker for them.

  • Yes l’ve heard that about red mark on their beak, amazing isn’t it xx
