Many hundreds were seen during the storm last wednesday. This immature took a rest on the beach at Wijk aan Zee. It was still strong enough to steal several fish from the gulls.

A long-stayer; it is in urban/park area for several weeks now. The first addition to my Dutch list since long time (the Lauwersoog Chretzschmar's Bunting might actually be the previous)

A short late afternoon trip today, and I decided to bike on the beach in search of gulls. And succeeded! This boldly patterned 1st-winter was at Scheveningen and Meijendel during January and as far as I know has not been seen for several weeks now. Today it was at Heemskerk, and it is a beauty!
|first-winter Iceland Gull - the primary pattern is exactly the same as the remarkable Scheveningen bird in January.|
|These are my first pictures with the D500 (that replaced a D3). I am very pleased with the autofocus accuracy and image quality (moderate crop on ISO1000, JPEG).|
