Adult IVORY GULL weighs in on the Outer Hebrides
This beautiful adult IVORY GULL, fabulously photographed here by local birder Steve Duffield, is present for a second day at Clachan a Luib, on North Uist (Outer Hebrides).
The bird is frequenting garden lawns where it is feeding on a diet of earthworms and was initially found by Brian Rabbitts..
Following two first-winters on Shetland late last year, this represents the first of 2009, representing the 248th species of the year.
