Alaskan Glaucous Gull
On 5th February 2009 I found a dead 3rd winter Glaucous Gull Larus hyperboreus on the south bank of the gateway to the Port of Rotterdam at 51.58'.15N 04.02'.54E. The corpse had been some days in the water. Among other things it's biometrics showed it to be an Alaskan Glaucous Gull of the race barrovianus. To our knowledge the Alaskan Glaucous Gull has never been reported from the North Sea area before. During January violent storms battered the Atlantic coasts of France and Spain bringing with them unusually large numbers of Glaucous and Iceland Gulls.
