In Europe Ring-billed
Gulls a hit, and in amongst twitcers in Denmark, a super hit. The
first delawarensis back in 1999 was found at our exact borderline, a
straight piece of road separating Denmark from Germany, and to make
it even worse, for some reason it preferred the southern side of the
road. Witch is Germany. Implicating the problem that birders wanting
to twitch the creature as a Danish observation had to spend some
time there and lot bread to persuade it into visiting the Danish
side of the road.
Who promised you anything but hard work.
Now this second Ring-billed friend is easier. Choosing the country’s
richest community. Forget about your hide. Leave you camouflage
jacket at home, don’t even need your binoculars, just bring some
leftover bread from you breakfast and go to Nærum. Take a seat the
bench and soon the bird will be there at your feet, along with the
ducks, by the way, the exact same way it was caught and ringed one
of the last days of this February 2006. Y56. Hands on.
Try it. Birding on the sunny side of the street.
