Iceland Gull

Happy new year everyone! It's been a while since my last post as I've been away and missed all the spectactular hurricanes on Islay. Just as the phone rang yesterday afternoon, this gull landed on the grass outside my window (and I've just checked and it's there again as I'm typing this). I had to hurry up my caller (Tracy from SNH) so I could go and take a photo. I have it on good authority that it's an Iceland Gull, although I know Carl saw a Glaucous Gull earlier in the year.


  1. There are several of both species on the island at the moment, part of a considerable influx into Scotland and perhaps especially the west coast. This is indeed an Iceland, which is similar in size to a Herring Gull, whereas a Glaucous is closer to a Great Blackback, and therefore has a much larger bill than your photo.
