Glaucous-winged Gull (Larus glaucescens), 5cy, 27.8.2010, Aarhus Harbor, Denmark

This evening I managed to relocate the Danish Glaucous-winged Gull in the most northern part of Aarhus Harbor, but again it was seen only for a few minutes before it flew off towards the eastern harbor.

As I was fully aware that it has a strange habit of allowing only short observations a few video recordings were made in haste as to document the record and illustrate the plumage state. Six minutes later it flew off towards southeast. The bird is apparently identical to the one seen in November and December 2009.

We hadn’t seen it for the last six months (since February) and therefore expected that it was only a winter visitor that had left the area by now, but apparently you’ll have to wait a while longer before it shows up at your local gull spot ;-)
