The Mew Gull reported by others was seen again at roughly 1:30 this afternoon near the outflow of freshwater near the Lynn/Swampscott town line. The bird was eventually chased southward by a dog walker. I hung around for a couple more hours, but the bird did not return.
This bird had a metal band sitting low on it's right leg. I regrettably spent too much time experimenting with digiscoping to make an effort to read the band. (All of my digiscope photos were useless in getting any information off the band.) If anybody is able to read the band, I and perhaps Massbird, would be interested in knowing more the circumstances of the banding and any associated information, especially subspecies or banding location.
