    I thought I saw a YELLOW-LEGGED GULL sat on roof opposite my house in Newquay late afternoon 18th May,had a very good look at it and given that one has been seen at Porth it seems almost certain that it was a YELLOW-LEGGED GULL.

    Not certain myself, as I only got view it head on, could also possibly be ring billed, but white tip on bill led me to think it was armenicus species.
