Little Gull at Clahane

Dropped into Clahane yesterday for a quick birdwatch on my way to work .
The sun was out and a  Little Gull was feeding close in with the usual Black-headed Gulls ,I had no camera.
I returned this morning on route to work, with an hour to spare, the day was dull and lightless, but the Little Gull was showing well.

I dont know.
