News of an Iceland Gull at Beckton had us eager to visit the site. The only problem was we had never visited this area before. Fortunately, Shaun H kindly gave me some site directions. Armed with this information we arrived on site and made our way behind the cinema and headed off along the footpath, only to realise we had taken the bottom path and we should have taken the top one!
Back on the right path, we passed the Becton Creekside Nature Reserve and picked out the Iceland Gull among the numerous Black-headed Gulls as soon as we reached the gates. We spent 3 hours on-site enjoying plenty of flight views of the Iceland Gull.
