Whitlingham Lane: possible Caspian Gull and very distant Goosander

On my way to check out the new ASDA at Lakenham, I thought I'd give the Goosander at Whitlingham Lane another bash: I think I may have seen it at a range of about half a mile!

Another bird that looked slightly more promising was a large gull at the far side of the Great Broad: to me it has the potential to be a Caspian Gull. I attach a misty photo of the bird, together with a couple of 'atmospheric' shots!

Oh! Just an aside! Am I the only person who is perplexed by the current trend for blogs that claim to be local patch-based, but seem to consist almost entirely of other people's photos and click-through adverts?
