THAYER'S GULL Larus thayeri (1) 1ST FOR SPAIN
(1) Lugo On 20.3.2010 a gull was seen at Lago, Xove, Lugo (Ricardo Rodríguez, David Calleja). That bird featured in the March 2010 page was believed to be a Thayer's Gull, the 1st for Spain. Confirmation of this suspite came recently when gull and ID specialist Alvaro Jaramillo commented on that bird in Spanish:

    "Esta parece ser un thayeri, bien clásico en su apariencia. Edad, no se, no tenemos ejemplares con anillos para verificar si es una especie que madura rápidamente o lentamente, pero en plumajes como este casi intermedio no se sabe si es un ejemplar en su segundo ciclo, o tercer ciclo. En el primer ciclo esta especie casi no muda hasta Febrero, y de ahí desaparecen en el ártico, y no sabemos si la primera muda cambia bastante el patrón o lo mantiene similar. Falta anillar algún día para ver si es una especie que madura rápidamente o lentamente, acá en el oeste solo tenemos buena información sobre la maduración de L. occidentalis.
    Pero lo importante es que es un thayeri, sin duda. Tiene el tamaño y forma, color de pico, ojo, orbital, y plumaje impecable como thayeri. Aquí seria uno del montón, no sobresaldría como diferente o inusual."

More interestingly, on 13.3.2011, a Thayer's Gull was seen at San Ciprián, Lugo. See photos below and a thumbnail in the right column. Later, some observers have come to see the gull. It is believed to be the same individual, one year later, thus, the 1st for Spain (Raul Carrillo & David Calleja; Toño Salazar; Ricardo Hevia; Dani Lopez, Nacho Castelao, Manuel Quintana & Conchi Ovín). Not seen on 19.3 but relocated on 20.3 (Antonio Gutiérrez) and still present on 21.3 morning (Fernando Pereiras; Raúl Carrillo)
