Just across the water...Twice!

Unusual post from myself regarding no pic's. due to numpty levels beyond belief and memory card problems.
Popped over to North Shields fish quay this morning with hopes of getting good views of larger 'white wingers' that had been reported here. Wasn't disappointed, 2 Glaucous gull's were rested on the roof of the shed with the words 'North Shields fish quay' on it on my first visit...2nd winter Iceland gull floated by also just to pee me off a little more..(.forgot to pick up the camera battery).

Crossed the Tyne again this afternoon (with camera battery) to find one of the star gulls in the same spot as seen previously, the now 'Viking' bird. Again the Iceland gull give great views as it floated up and down on the wind here. The 'true' Glaucous was picked up on another shed roof briefly before it done a one.

I had just about given up hope of any better views when the heaven's opened and took shelter in the car. And then one of the fishing boats right in front of where I'd parked started to flush it's hull ...Gull feeding frenzy commenced! Brilliant views had of both these birds. ( memory card problems). And the Iceland gull floated by again......

On a happier note it was great to see a few old faces known.. and meet a few unknown.
