Soon after dawn on Saturday, March 9th 2015, a probable Bonaparte's Gull was reported in flight off the Chesil Beach from Chesil Cove, Portland by local birder Charlie Richards. The bird was soon after located with Black-headed Gulls at nearby Ferrybridge where it was watched at close distance by a number observers. The bird stayed on locally for a number of days.
