2CY Glaucous Gull – 20150101

First-winter Glaucous Gulls Larus hyperboreus are starting to appear again on the beaches along the Dutch coast. Today I saw my first one for this winter season at the beach of Katwijk aan Zee.

All images were taken on 1 January 2015 (in fading light). A beautiful gull and a very nice start to the new year.
