I went to Galway on the 5th January to see the adult Ross's Gull found the evening before along the prom at Salthill by Aonghus O' Donnell. I met up with Dermot Breen and we spent a couple of hours trying to re-locate the bird but to no avail. There were two immature Little Gulls feeding along the edge of the tide at Salthill and one adult Glaucous Gull and one first-winter bird near Nimmo's Pier.
