Iceland in Ashford !!!

This has got to be one of my best finds around Ashford, since I started birdwatching.

Today (18th February - 15:00) Adult Iceland Gull (record shots below) in a winter wheat field behind Conningbrook Gravel Pits, TR036429, with Black-headed, Common and Herring Gulls. What a cracker, this bird has made up for this week's missed White-Tailed Eagle on the Romney Marshes.
