Herring Gull - January 11th 2013

Post by Cristian Mihai » Wed Jan 16, 2013 5:12 pm

I spotted this bird in Herastrau park (among hundreds of Caspian Gulls and tens of Yellow-legged Gulls). Sorry for the quality of the pictures, but the bird was rather far away and the light was poor. The Herring Gull is a rare winter vagrant for Romania.

Nice find.
Looks like an argentatus from the North-East to me.
