Rare bird alert


Recommended Posts

Probably only of interest to avid watchers, but a Bonaparte's Gull reported at WWT Slimbridge, (grounds closed at present).

A North American bird, probably blown off course on a recent weather front.

One of the smallest of gulls at 11 - 15 inches  in length, it resembles a black headed gull, but with leg and bill colour differences.

Breeds in Alaska........but this particular bird is only a second calendar year bird, so not breeding age.

All the best.
