Bonaparte's Gull and Goosander Family

A morning visit to the Exe Estuary proved very worthwhile with some good scope views of Matt's excellent recent find -  2nd Cal Year Bonaparte's Gull. It was busy feeding amongst the 100+ Black-headed Gulls. Despite the distance, the photos still show many of the features, such as grey nape, very striking pale under primaries, pink legs etc.
A stroll along the Otter later in the day revealed a great family group of Goosander - an adult female with 15 young.
