Bonaparte's Gull

Bonaparte's Gull

Chroicocephalus philadelphia

This bird was found at Red Nab, Heysham on the afternoon high tide of July 14th 2013, reappearing on the afternoon of 15th where it remained to throughout much of the following day, potentially the 12th record for Lancashire and Merseyside, but the first since one or two were noted in the region in May 2008. The bird was filmed by Pete Hines on July 16th.
