Rare Audouin's Gull sighting in Athens

On February 4th, an adult Audouin's Gull was seen together with 14 Black-headed Gulls in the shallow waters of the bay of Vravrona, east of Athens. The bird was wary, flying away when approached. This is the first observation of this rare gull in Vravrona and one of the very few around Athens. 

Seen together with the Black-headed, looks like their "big brother"

Even though I was more than 100 meters away, it didn't tolerate my presence...
