North Shields Fish Quay 26th February

A trip to the dentists at Cramlington provided us with an opportunity to visit North Shields Fish Quay to get our teeth into some winter gulls and more specifically a widely reported Glaucous Gull seen in the area over the last few days.Once we arrived it didn't take long to pick out a  pale gull on the shed roofs, its white wing tips,dark tipped bill and bulky shape proved to be the target of our trip, a very smart looking juvenile Glaucous Gull. Also of note were a number of Turnstones on the shed roofs and a Cormorant of the type "sinensis"
