Lesser Black-backed Gull

I was back on the Great Saltee Island, in Wexford again today. The hope was that there night be some migration through the island, but unfortunately it was very quiet.  The only birds of note were; one Short-eared Owl, one Common Redstart that disappeared very quickly, glimpses of a Garden Warbler, two Blackcaps, two Willow Warblers, two Chiffchaff, one Peregrine, four Chough and a handful of Wheatears and Sedge Warblers.  So my camera got little use except for the Lesser Black-backed Gulls Larus fuscus graellsii near the Ring that I spent a some time photographing.  Nice gulls though.
