Hi Everyone - This is my first post.

I have now tried to connect with the ever present Gaucous Gull at Fishmoor Res. 4 times. I arrived onsite at 15.50 and started to scan the Gulls onsite. No Luck by 16.04, until i was scanning the flying gulls in the direction of Winter Hill, and I saw the white wing sticking out like a sore thumb! A fabulous 1st winter bird and a Lifer.
