More gulls from Madeira

An Iceland Gull at the Ribeira Brava river mouth was even more surprising than the Ring-billed Gull. Both species have the status "occasional" in Madeira. Note that it is a second-winter/3rd calender year (pale iris). Date of observation Feb. 2nd.

and some more images of the Ring-billed;

more occasional (and exceptional!) records soon
