Adw Iceland Gull record shot and Istw news

Ad Iceland Gull Oxwich 7/1/12
As promised a video grab of the adult Iceland Gull at Oxwich on the 7/1/12. The video is very dark and this image has been processed heavily. However, it does show the heavier streaking around the head and lack of 3w bill which should be enough to separate it from the 3w that stayed for a few days. A few birders present around Oxwich today but no Iceland sightings that I'm aware of.

Dave Lewis did confirm that the 1stw Iceland Gull was sill present around the Jackstones Pier at Aberavon early afternoon, today.
