White wing weather

Many thanks (again) to Des Ney for sending me this smashing picture of a young Glauc on the beach north of Fisherman’s Path at Freshfield yesterday.
“I’ve had quite an interesting week so far on the beach”, Des explained. “Found a sadly deceased Grey Seal at Freshfield after the high winds and rough seas. Today I photographed what I’ve since been informed is a Glaucous Gull which was a nice find”.
Indeed it is Des – it has been a few years since two fine Glaucs wintered between Ainsdale and Birkdale, so I hope this one sticks around.
