SABINE'S GULL Larus sabini


Another Arctic breeder familiar to many British birders as an annual visitor especially in Autumn, as they migrate to areas off South America and South Africa. Exclusively marine even in winter, many records are birds seen on seawatches, although some may linger for a few days, and storm-driven birds inland are not infrequent. The adult bird is one of the most handsome of gulls.
