 Sabine`s Gull

A trip out to Hampshire today with Ken and Andy in hope of seeing the adult Sabine`s Gull that has been showing at Budds Farm in Havant .

We arrived too find out that the bird was not on show but that it had been seen earlier before we got there . So we had a look at a couple of sites with no joy . But then we were told that we were looking in the wrong place and told where the bird was being seen , so we headed out along the sea wall and met up with other birders who were looking at the bird . And there it was in all its glory a stunning adult bird in full summer plumage .

We got great views of the bird feeding on the ground and in flight so we headed back towards the car only to have the bird fly in front of us and then land just in front of our feet . We watched for a while just thinking how lucky we were .
