Nearly induced a heart attack just now at Norfolk Bridge. Orange bill base, grey legs and dark eye, some whacky hybrid?

Nice find Andy. Is the reported flush by fireworks likely to have sent it far or do you think it’s likely to still be in the area?

Fingers crossed it hasn't gone far. Same colour ringed lessers have been around for weeks.

An Audouin's Gull, apparently a 4cy but there are some 3cy that may resemble this. If it had tail band = 3cy. If not 4 cy. Congrats

Replying to @gutarb @SheffBirders
Full black tail band so assume 3cy.

Yes, and rests of trailing edge to secondaries, one of the key features of 2nd summer - 3cy birds
