A Mew Gull comes back

Renown Mew Gull "whisperer"  Shane Blodgett has found yet again MEW GULL along the southwestern shores of Brooklyn.The bird ventured to Veterans Pier that this blog covers at its extreme range :)

First spotted 200 yards south of the Bay Ridge gull spot Veterans Pier ( at the terminus of Bay Ridge avenue), the MEW GULL briefly landed on the pier before taking off southwesterly towards Staten Island. Its possible it went towards Caesar's Bay Gravesend area.

Shane believes its the same gull he had a year or two ago ( I forget when) ....the western North American form.
