A first summer Ross's Gull has been present at Bowling Green for two weeks though was only identified last Thursday by Rob Laughton. It was previously considered to be a Little Gull. But who would expect to stumble across this species which should be inside the Arctic Circle?! It certainly created quite a twitch of around 50 birders today. It was always distant and these two shots were the best that I could get, peering through a gap in the hedge.
