053/365 Sooty Gull Larus hemprichii

Another from Egypt, 053 is a Sooty Gull. The Red Sea in Egypt is the best place to see Sooty Gull and White-eyed Gull (Ichthyaetus leucophthalmus) in the Western Palearctic, with the White-eyed Gull being endemic here. It was great to see them in good numbers whilst we were there.
