An Iceland Gull pays a visit to Pagham Lagoon.

As I was checking to see if the 'possible' Siberian Chiffchaff  still remained in the bushes adjoining Pagham Lagoon I checked the birds on the Lagoon and there, right in the middle, was an Iceland Gull! I had the camera with me and got a few shots of it as it paddled about before taking flight and circling around several times before heading off in an easterly direction.
A cracking bird!

Circling before heading east
A couple of Goldeneye still remain together with a pair of Red Breasted Mergansers and early in the day a female Pochard(not so common on the Lagoon).
Drake Goldeneye....soon to depart!
