Anyway, a new 1st-winter Caspian Gull at Thames Barrier Park today was the highlight. It never came that close, but I was just thankful to see it as Dante and I were both getting a bit disillusioned with proceedings have lobbed over 10 loaves of bread out between us: -

Spread across both days, I managed only eight rings - a regular Danish Great Black-backed Gull, a 1st-winter Danish Lesser Black-backed Gull that Josh had seen in West London in February and six different NTGG rings.
