1st February, 2015 Newhaven Harbour

David had picked out a 1stW male Caspian Gull feeding in the harbour at low tide. By the time I arrived, the light was already beginning to go but I took a series of pictures on a high ISO although hopefully David will have better when he digiscoped it in better light before I arrived.

It was picking up mussels out of the sea and was quite aggressive to the other large gulls nearby.
