Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Very rare winter vagrant from ice-bound High Arctic. Found singly in open coastal habitats (very exceptionally inland), where can be very confiding as it scavenges on dead fish and other carrion. Suggests an odd white pigeon as much as a typical gull. Adult is snowy white with black legs, yellow-tipped greenish bill. Immature has dark face, variable black spotting on wings and tail.
