Ring-Billed Gull – "Finval" Research Centre

Ring-Billed Gull

112During an expedition arranged by the Finval Research Centre in summer 2015 to the Khatanga Bay in the Laptev Sea a Swedish ornithologist Alexander Hellquist found a Ring-Billed Gull (Larus delawarensis), a bird species that is new for Russia. The nearest places where this species occurs are Alaska (4500 km) and Canada (5000km). There are records of this species in Kamchatka, but they are not proved by good-quality photos… A Ring-Billed Gull is the nearest one to the camera man on the photo. A black ring on the yellow bill is clearly seen.
