Regional meetings: gull meeting at Cesenatico, NE Italy, saturday 27th february 2010

Post  Admin on Sun Feb 14, 2010 1:17 am

Gull-watching is not so popular in Italy, although the more than 8.000 km of coastline of the country. So we must try to increase interest towards gulls by organizing meeting to the best hotsposts, among which we have the pier of Zadina, near Cesenatico, Adriatic. The site hosts regularly, in winter, dozen of Herring Gulls, good numbers of Caspian, Common, Mediterranean and Lesser Black-backed besides the default species such as Yellow-legged and Black-headed gulls. Next meeting will be held saturday February the 27th. Those are some pictures taken during the first meeting in December 2008.

I took part at the event and I have to tell that has been a wonderful training for gull's identification: several plumages, ages and species ! a VERY GOOD experience ! This event gave us se possibility to observe also: Cormorants and Spoonbills....
