Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus), Acre shore, 14/JAN/06


Tomer Landsberger

On the morning of the 14th, Gidon Segali and Tap were surveying Tmarim beach (Acre shore) for the annual Waterfowl count. While examining the large groups of Gull along the beach, the two discovered an adult type GBB Gull, possibly a 6th or 7th CY female.

This species is an extremely rare vagrant to Israel with only seven previous records, all from the Mediterranean coast and the Gulf of Eilat.

Last seen: 15/Mar/06
