Ross's Gull (Rhodostethia rosea), Lena Delta, Siberia, Russia

Year: 2010
From collection: Arctic Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Ross's Gull (Rhodostethia rosea) breeds in the high arctic of northernmost North America, and northeast Siberia. It migrates only short distances south in autumn, most of the population wintering in northern latitudes at the edge of the pack ice, although some birds reach more temperate areas, such as north west Europe. The bird is named after the British explorer James Clark Ross.
