Black-headed Gull Chroicocephalus ridibundus
|Date||26 Jan 1948|
|Date added||25 Oct 2021|
|A bird shot from group of five juveniles and two adults, with specimen in LKCNHM (Gibson-Hill, 1950b; Wang & hails, 2007). Both Lim (2009) and Wang & Hails (2007) describe the same sighting but dates are wildly different. Lim (2009) cites Cites Gibson-Hill (1950d), with date 26/1/1948, Wang & Hails (2007) cites Boden-kloss (1926), with date 2/2/1948. The date listed in Gibson-Hill (1950d) date is referenced correctly. Wang & Hails (2007) does not list Boden-kloss (1926) in the reference and we are unsure what the cited document is.|
|Verdict||Accepted / Wild (Specimen)|
