Mediterranean Gulls, Southend Pier

You're almost guaranteed Mediterranean Gulls at the end of Southend Pier. There were about sixty of them up the 'longest pleasure pier in the world' this morning with all generations well represented. Here they are, first winter, second winter and adult Mediterranean Gull.

Other sightings included c.100 Turnstone, 3 Common Gull, a Sandwich Tern and, on the way back, I was surprised to see a Kingfisher flying about under the pier entrance.
