First Iceland gull ever in Belarus


This 2012 video from Britain says about itself:

March is a great time to catch up with Gulls, as the birds that have been spending the winter months here begin to head back to their breeding areas. This winter saw a huge influx of Iceland and Glaucous Gulls into the UK. This video hope to help with the ID of these two often confused species.

I saw many glaucous gulls in Svalbard, where they nest.
