Thayer’s – like Gull in Galway

Dunno is the answer…

To the “What is it?” question. It’s down to the boys on the ground and increasingly better photos- but it is an interesting  bird. Enough is known about the subject now for lots of folk to get an idea- so here few photos to ruminate on over Sunday tea… Ideally? See it in the field! Personally if I only had couple of the flight shots below to go on (especially those further away!), I would be declaring it as a great looking Thayer’s Gull. Some of those original on-the-deck shots though are less appealing. Lets see how it plays…

Thanks to Dermot Breen who sent these photos taken today, by Michael Davis, at Rossaveal, Galway.
