Dark Herring Gull

Just a short update. Rockmund called me yesterday. It is no only in Klaksvík that the Iceland Gull-invasion has reached new heights. In Sørvágur 83 birds were present yesterday. 17 of these were ssp. kumlieni. To put it short: Two harbours were checked yesterday. It produced 243 Iceland Gulls including 25 Kumlien’s Gulls. I wonder how many Iceland Gulls would have been seen if 20 harbours were checked… and where is that Thayer’s?

Besides the Iceland Gulls Rockmund also found a very dark Herring Gull. And as always the thoughts go to smithsonianus…
