on a roll

the morning did not start well with frequent heavy showers on a cold NW wind on the patch; by 09:45 I thought about giving up but did a quick check of the Humber in case of wildfowl or Little Auks; driving into the car park a superb first-winter Glaucous Gull flew over and headed east; stopping in the middle of the car park I jumped out and watched it turn back towards me; camera out of the boot in a flash but unfortunately it flew right over my head rather than to the north where it would have been lit by the sun; never mind a good bird and the first one on the patch for several years
