While I was on the east Pier at Dun Laoghaire today, I could see a white-winged Gull in the distance flying along the west pier. I scooted over to the Fish Shop where, when I arrived this first-winter Iceland was sitting on top of a Fishing Boat. As I was taking shots Jimmy 'The Pecker' Murphy from North Wexford arrived, as he had spotted the bird earlier and seen me taking shots on the fishing pier. We didn't get much of a chance for a long chat as both of us were rushing off to other appointments, but we took a load of photos of this bird and Med Gulls flying around.
