Ross's Gull

My dad and I spent a fantastic day watching and photographing the Ross's Gull at Ormsary, in Argyll against a backdrop of the islands of Jura and Islay. This magical gull from the high Arctic showed very well, sometimes down to three metres. I'm convinced that this bird had never encountered humans before it arrived on these shores. It just seemed oblivous to us as it flew around our heads and landed right in front of the lens and 'scope.
