Kumlien's in Killybegs

On my way north last week to work in Limavady I got an hour late Monday afternoon to check out the gulls in Killybegs.  Most of the fishing fleet were gone to sea and there were few gulls in the  harbour.  There were about 300 gulls in the area and with them were; two adult Kumlien's Gulls, three first-winter Iceland Gulls, one second-winter Iceland Gull, three first-winter and one second-winter Glaucous Gulls.
