Surprisingly only a few Glaucous Gull were seen during the trip, a total of four; a second-winter at Nimmo's Pier daily and three different first-winter birds at Rossaveal Docks. Light again was a factor in how crisp the images ended up being.

This second-winter, at Nimmo's Pier, was a large bulky bird, near to the size of a Great Black-backed Gull.
 
Rossaveal held three different Glaucous Gulls which included a very large, white, huge billed bird. All three individual are below:

Bird 1:
 
Bird 2: low light hampered attempts at getting crisp images as ISO's had top be pushed up.
Bird 3: low light hampered attempts at getting crisp images as ISO's had top be pushed up.
