In search of Ross’s Gull

‘Birding readers’ may be familiar with the book In search of Ross’s Gull by Michael Densley.  Published in 1999 by Peregrine Books it charts the author’s lifetime study of the bird, cumulating in his solo visit to the Russian Arctic in 1990 and subsequent recording of the biology, seasonal distribution and movements of one of the world’s most sought after ‘ticks’.
