|Trash birding, literally: eight gull species provided excellent opportunities for learning.|
|The lectures by Klaus Malling Olsen, here on Caspian Gull, emphasised the identification characters that those taking part were able to observe in the field.|
|Caspian Gull was star of the show, this second-winter being one of six seen over the two days ...|
|Small numbers of Yellow-legged Gulls included this second-winter individual.|
|Special observation conditions on a working and dangerous industrial site require special gear.|
* Special thanks not only to Klaus and Andy, but to the RSPB's Martin Holm and also Howard Vaughan for organising the event, as well as Richard Fassnidge, Peter Budd and colleagues at Veolia for all their help.
