The light wasn't great; well it was, it was just the contrast was too great and one couldn't get the sun behind one to get a 'good' photo.
I believe Iceland Gulls (Larus Glaucoides) breed in northern Canada and Greenland, so this fella is a fair way from 'home'. I understand they are migratory birds anyway and as well as the British Isles winter in the north east states of the USA. Again apparently only seen in Iceland during the winter. I guess all these north-east winds from that area will bring use more migratory birds over the coming winter months... someting to look out for. Like most gulls I think they will eat just about anything and will scavenge for food. Welcome to Preston!
