Limited coverage today but a check of the Patch this afternoon revealed even more gulls feeding there and including the regular two Iceland Gulls, a first-winter Caspian Gull, a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull, a first-winter Little Gull and two adult Mediterranean Gulls.
A short video (click here) of the gull frenzy at the Patch. Finding a Vega Gull is proving impossible!
