On Saturday we decided to try and see the Laughing Gull at New Brighton. It was an easy twitch with the first-winter Laughing Gull on view almost all the time, showing well on the ground and briefly in flight.
On the way back home we took a detour to Rufforth and spent the afternoon there. There was a lot of gulls but they kept flying back to the tip which made finding birds quite hard. In the end we saw a first-winter Caspian Gull as well as adult and second-winter Iceland Gulls and a Peregrine. 3 Red Kites were seen from the car.
