Observation details

Dark-headed small gull. Bigger than the terns which were trying to see it off. Flew around the bay a few times. First time I saw it from the Zodiac but not very well which was very frustrating. Then it came around a few times while I was on the beach past the weather observation hut. Light grey upper parts, white tail, white tip to the wings which had black as well.
