This monster of a Herring Gull stood out in the gull roost at Colwyn Bay this evening. The dark 'adult' mantle feathers stood out as well as the large two toned 'glaucous' type bill. The breast was a brown / grey wash and the head was also grey washed, most unlike the similar aged 'argenteus' Herring Gulls.
