Sabine's Gull !
21 Oct - The rarest bird I've found! I was walking back with a friend along Brighton seafront, after breakfast, when this very graceful juvenile Sabine's Gull flew in front of me...I had no bins or scope! I got some photos of it on the shingle having raced back from my car. I then got the news out, including to the Sussex recorder, and local birders admired it throughout the afternoon. Photo JM.
