White wingers

An unexpectedly excellent seawatch from Whitburn this morning. The best 'white-winger' day the obs has seen with 2 Glaucous and 2 Iceland Gull passing south. All four were close in and the star was the adult Iceland. The Glaucs passed slowly allowing photos, but unfortunately the 2 Icelands shot straight through.
