Ring-billed Gull, Portrush, Northern Ireland

The adult Ring-billed gull which seems to live permanently at Portrush showed well today, on the East Strand car park. There was no sign of it when I first arrived, but I got myself some fish and chips and a coffee and parked up near the small flock of gulls on the car park and waited. Eventually I spotted the bird, one of the best ring-billed gulls I've seen in a while. My second in Northern Ireland, following another long stayer at Carrickfergus in December 2013. That bird is also still being seen.

Year 2015: 148 (Ring-billed gull)

It was bit windy.
