The Med Gull always came in from north in the evening. So that was the place to look. I started of by a short look at Frognerparken, but only two Black-headed sat on the ice. With no gull in the park, I walked north against Majorstuen. Here I filled up the bag with old bread from Rema 1000, and started looking at the gulls on the roof. 200 meters up Kirkeveien I saw two small gulls on a chimney. Binoculars where pointed at them, and the bird that was turned away was looking good. A Med Gull on the chimney! I walked around and tried to feed the birds. Not hard at all. All the birds in the area came, but they rarely landed.
Most likely the Med has been in the area from Majorstuen to Marienlyst all the time since it last was under control. The only problem is that nobody has been looking for it!
Simon (and every body else!), now you may have a chance to see the bird in 2012! Not all of us needed 10 trips ;)

The Iceland at Frogn is still present!
