Breeding GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULLS in SPAIN

A range extension of GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULL that I was unaware of in Galicia Region..........

It's Cosme Damián Romai, from Galicia (NW Spain). In relation to breeding GBBG/KG in Morocco, I attach further information of breeding GBBG in Spain:

http://www.seo.org/media/docs/22gaviesc07.pdf
check pages 69-73 (in Spanish) and page 87 (English abstract).

More breeding evidence was noted in 2008 and 2009, with photos:

Thus, breeding is confirmed in Galicia since 2006, with scattered pairs in the N of SW of the region.
