Not all birdwatchers are very keen on gulls but in the Weymouth area most of us are. In the winter months when the days are short and birds can be hard to find there is a huge range of different gulls to look for. The most numerous is the Black-headed Gull, seen here fishing for something or other at Lodmoor RSPB Reserve.
At the other end of the rarity scale is this Iceland Gull, recently arrived from its breeding grounds in Greenland. It is called an Iceland Gull because it normally spends the winter there. This video was taken by Jess Evans.
When I started birdwatching fifty years ago I would get very excited when a Mediterranean Gull turned up. Since then they have dramatically increased their breeding range in Europe and every year several thousand winter around Weymouth. This video of a flock in flight at Radipole would have been unthinkable a few years ago.
Incidentally the strange noise in that last video is a slowed-down Canada Goose!
