Franklin's Gull at Hayle Estuary, Cornwall

An adult Franklin's Gull was found on Wednesday 26th October by Jon Mycock and Dan Eva. I saw it on Sunday in the fields behind Tempest Printing, Carbis Bay and then saw it well on the estuary.  It is the 9th record for Cornwall, the last record being an adult or second winter on the Gannel in Nov 2005.  A first winter bird was also on Hayle Estuary from the 1st-2nd Nov 2005. (There has also been reports of Franklins Gull at Siblyback and the Camel in this first winter period though I don't know any dates).
