Laughing Gull

Laughing Gull

Larus atricilla

This adult wearing metal ring was found at Loowaard, Duiven on August 5th 2007 and it was seen until October 11th. After more than five years, this famous bird, called 'Atze', turned up again after previous visits in July and August 2000, October 2001 and April 2002. The same bird has been recorded, eg, in Germany (where it was ringed) in 2001-02 and 2005, Italy in 2004, Switzerland in 2006 and Spain in 2007. The bird was filmed by Steven Wytema on August 15th 2007.
