January 2009

On the 31st a Lesser Black-backed Gull was seen along Treshnish shore. This is not a true migrant but birds are scarce in the winter months in Scotland, preferring the milder climate of southern Britain. I had seen one 6 weeks earlier but was not certain that it wasn’t the common wintering Great Black-backed Gull.
