An arctic blast from the past

29th November is obviously a date for special birds in the Glamorgan calendar. Back in 2002 Bob Howells found this stunning Ivory Gull on the beach between West Cross and Blackpill. Given the weather we're experiencing at present another one wouldn't look out of place. It will be very interesting to see what other birds this cold spell will bring our way...

This fabulous photograph was taken by Tristan Bantock after the bird had moved around the bay towards Mumbles.
