An interesting gull at Revtangen today: This 4 cy Herring Gull with a yellow colourring T:66K was ringed as a young at Dunbuy Island, Aberdeenshire, UK in July 2013. There are less than 10 records of the ssp. argenteus in Norway, as it will take a ringed bird to be accepted. 4K gråmåke av underarten argenteus på Revtangen i dag.  

Observations: Marsh Harrier 1.
