Ivory Gull

Ivory Gull

Pagophila eburnea

Finally a Ivory Gull found it's was to Denmark again. This bird was found by Flemming Møller on December 18th 2013 at Hanstholm, but the news first was out on December 20th in the late afternoon. Local birder John Kyed tried to finde the gull whit a big flashlight after dinner, and at 8.13 PM read the story (in Danish) here and look at some photos here, and with a Snowy Owl here.
It was the 8th record in Denmark and the first since 2006.
The bird was seen at least until December 24th, and it was filmed by Michael Køie Poulsen, Kield Frithoif Andersson and John Kyed.
