Over at the park this afternoon I noticed all the Black-headed Gulls that make Valentines Park their home for the winter were already here. In the middle of the lake were some old rowing boats which the gulls love to sit on. As my brother who shows no interest in birds was with me, I didn't have much time to look at the gulls for anything interesting in their midst. So I quickly got the scope on the boat and noticed a Common Gull, which I don't think I've seen here before!
