Mongolian Gull Larus mongolicus

 

The winter 2011-2012 meant for the North Atlantic a continuing flow of SW & NW storms
bringing into the Northsea area a large influx of Iceland Gulls from the NW & W Atlantic
as well as other gulls of arctic and subarctic origin. Among the thousands of gulls
along the Dutch coast feeding on floating
Ensis shells was this 1st winter
Mongolian Gull
Larus mongolicus found on 7th January 2012 a species not seen before in our region.
