My run of finding local Ring-billed Gulls continues with this bird found at Hole Haven Creek on 1st November 2008 being the fourth such bird. It was only present for about ten minutes but at least a few digiscoped record shots were possible in that time. This bird had a noticeable limp so if any Ring-billed Gulls get picked up anywhere else on the east coast it may be possible to determine if this is the same.
