6 hour dip

Arrived at north shields fish quay at 8am in search of the iceland gull which had being reported on sunday, no sign of the bird on the shed roofs so decided to have a walk to black middens rocks, where i found 500+ large gulls. I just managed to scan threw them when the p&o ferry sailed past and put all the gulls up, they scattered in all directions :( only about 100 gulls remained at the fish quay. I spent the next 5 hours looking around the fish quay in search of the iceland with no luck, i did get two new year ticks (kittiwake, gannet). I checked the gull roost on the tyne this evening, 10,000+ mixed gulls came in to roost ''amazing''. i'm sure the iceland gull will be in the roost? this is my mission tomorrow, finding the iceland gull in gateshead :)
