Cornwall - One thing is for sure with birds, you always have to be ready for surprises. This is a Ring-billed Gull with excessive melanin in its genes, something that occurs far less frequently in birds than leucism, where there is a deficiency in colours, usually melanin. We know this is an adult because it was reported two years ago in the same area and looked exactly the same at that time. This is the first bird of any kind that I have encountered with such a condition. Leucistic birds (pale or white feathers) are more commonly found.
