Friday 23rd January, 7-8pm
Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle
In this talk Andrew will focus on the identification of species of large white headed gulls that may be encountered in the North East, primarily Herring, Lesser black-backed, Great black-backed, Iceland, Glaucous, Kumlien’s, Caspian and Yellow-legged Gull but American Herring Gull and Thayer’s Gull will also feature. Although this is a complex and potentially confusing set of species this talk is suitable for all levels and will take us from the ID of gulls you would find on roofs in a city centre to gulls you wouldn’t normally see at all.
