Apologies for not putting this out during the day, but there were two Lesser Black-backed gulls on the mounds at the Stevenson Road Composting Facility between 1120-130 today.
They were with maybe 700 Ring-billed Gulls and 25 or so Herring Gulls. One was an adult, white head/neck, with very bright but not deep bill and big smudgy red spot (as well as yellowish legs and fairly dark back) and other with some head-neck streaking, a black-ish bill and less uniform grey back. Neither flew, and I am not proficient enough to guess at age of second bird.
