Audouin's Gull

This morning I had a brief visit at Ashdod rubbish dump, to collect an exhausted Caspian Gull that was found by the workers there. A quick scan through the gulls - bang! 1st-winter Audouin's! Unfortunately it took off very fast and flew towards the beach. No images - camera was in the car. I chucked the poor exhausted caspian in the car, and sped off to the beach, but I saw no gull roost and no sign of my gull. Hope it sticks around for some time, though they usually don't these guys...

Chukars were very vocal, among some nice almost-spring vegetation.

Hybrid Laughing X Siberian Gull:

This Grey Heron was very happy among the roosting gulls.
