Mandarin and a hybrid gull ?
A pair of mandarins from Tuesday at Santon Downham showing very nicely. They were however very alert and wary of me to the extent that the male was doing some kind of threat gesture towards me, something I have not seen before.
The gull is probably either a hybrid Med x Blackhead or a leucistic Black headed gull, I'm not too sure but I think the hybrid theory may be more likely, any thoughts?
