Herring x Glaucous Gull Hybrid - Preston, Lancashire - April 2012

Here are some shots of a hybrid Herring x Glaucous Gull (Viking Gull) which is currently in Preston Lancashire, this is not an uncommon hybrid but its interesting to see nice close up shots of one, allowing for a study of the birds odd plumage.
