Just a couple of quick corrections to Laurie's earlier post. Laurie thought
I said that the slate-grey back of the Laughing Gull was darker than a
Pacific Gull; I meant the opposite (Pacific Gull upperparts are black, at
least where I come from). Also while the outer primaries are tipped white,
the description of them as "windows" I would think a bit generous and more
applicable to Franklin's Gull - which this bird is most certainly not!

The bird certainly seemed more settled than on my previous visit. It will be
interesting to see how long it hangs around.

Cheers, AS
