Laughing Gull – Larus atricilla Adult winter – Porthmadod, Gwynedd – March 5th 2006

This North American Larus  is one of a number that turned up in the UK during the gales in November 2005. This particular bird had been in the Porthmadog area since that time and was a very confiding individual. About 60 Laughing Gulls were recorded during this remarkable influx, giving many modern day birders ideal opportunities to study this superb gull.
