    Default Azorean YLGU Online

    I was wondering if anyone knows of an s decent collection of Azorean YLGU's online. I currently have two sources, one being Martin Reid's Website and another by an Italian birder. Does anyone know of any others, or better yet does anyone out there have any photos of Azorean YLGU's?

    Default Azorean Atlantic Gulls

    Hi Dave

    Peter Alfrey obtained a large volume of images of Azorean Atlantic Gulls from his many trips there and very kindly compiled a CD for me of such. Richard Bonser and Josh Jones also collated a lot of material from there too. I also have a mass of images from Madeira and the Canary Islands of 'Yellow-legged Gulls' there and Daniel Velasco has masses of material from NW Spain where some interesting populations and individuals are occurring. What do you actually want to see? I can upload a selection on here if you want
