There is a wise lesson we can learn from this happening. For the weather was very bad on this given day, Ben and Kapser decided to start with a good breakfast and only left home at 10am or so. The first place they stopped and had a look in the rain, was at The Uitwatering at Katwijk aan Zee. Somehow, Kapser found out he had forgotten his binoculars and telescope, but took Ben's telescope and started to check the gulls resting on the river side of The Watering. Ben took his binocs and scanned the shore. Immediately, he noticed an aberrant gull. He yelled "Burgemeester!!!" towards Kapser. Kapser had a quick look through the telescope and could finish the bird of as being a Iceland Gull. The news was spread through the Dutch Birding pager system and Menno and Franky D. arrived soon. But, unfortunately the bird decided to fly south along the coast. In the afternoon, Franky found the bird again. In the days, weeks and even months to follow, the bird was present now and then. It gave many, many birders the opportunity to have some nice views, if not their first views ever, of this beautiful species.
