Ivory Gull Pagophila eburnea

This beautiful arctic gull is a very rare visitor to the UK where the majority of records are from Scotland (chiefly the northern isles). A few have reached southern counties including one in Norfolk and this very popular bird in Suffolk.

This was in the days when I was using a film camera and these photos are scanned from prints.
