Another Argentatus Variation

Spotted this argentatus Herring Gull at Castle Lake today;
It ticked most of the boxes for a typical argentatus except the mantle shade was certainly one of the darkest I've seen and the legs which were a very pale pink colour.
Another gull of interest was this adult Mediterranean Gull

The juvenile Pectoral Sandpiper was still present for its fifth day 

Others included 1 Ruff, 1 Green Sandpiper, 3 Snipe, 3 Redshank, 17 Curlew, 1 Little Egret and 2 Common Buzzard.
