For over an hour on 21 October 2015, the animal swam along with shrimp fishing boat GRE34.
This video from the Netherlands says about itself:
A large colony of Sandwich Terns with brooding birds and chicks on a beach of shells. The chicks all vary in age, and a few of the older birds carry fish in their beaks.
About 100 young Sandwich terns have been provided with white coloured rings. Last year, the young terns got red rings.

A baby female Adder Vipera berus berus is shown curling up alongside an adult male Slow-worm Anguis fragilis. The tiny snake would have been born during the previous year and it is just as venomous as an adult.

It is a remarkable observation, because slow worms do not live on the Wadden Sea islands. In 2014 one was reported in a garden on Texel island. Ecomare museum on Texel suspects the animal lifted to the island, eg it made the sea crossing with compost or straw. Probably also the Ameland individual arrived like this as a stowaway on the island.
Translated from the Waddenvereniging in the Netherlands today:
The oldest ringed herring gull in our country turned up last weekend in Leeuwarden‘s [capital of Friesland province] new district Blitsaerd in front of the lens of nature photographer Ruurd Jelle van der Ley …
Meanwhile, the seagull has reached the respectable age of 28 years and eight months. On July 3, 1986, on Ameland island, this bird got two colored rings. An orange one with letter A and a green one with letter Y. Birdwatchers know him as OAGJ or Green J. he lost the orange ring about six years ago. Thanks to the remaining green ring and the fact that he walks with a slight limp he is still recognizable.
The second biggest nesting colony of Sandwich terns in western Europe is there.
There has been erosion, making the Feugelpôlle smaller. Work has been done to stop that.
