Iceland and Kumlien's Gulls.....

This winter has seen a large influx of White-winged gulls to Shetland. Unsurprisingly they have predominantly been Iceland Gulls like these photographed in Lerwick.....

With a huge invasion of Iceland Gulls, it was perhaps not surprising they were accompanied by various Kumlien's type gulls.....
