New Species for TrekNature:

Hello my friends,
I came back from my Egypt and Sudan trip between August 12th and September 1st. It was a good trip, in spite of political events in Egypt and permission hardnness in Sudan.
Well, I have uploaded first shot of this tour:
Larus (Ichthyaetus) leucophthalmus - Kızıldeniz Martısı, Akgözlü Martı [TR], White-eyed Gull [EN] is a member of the Gull family Laridae. Sometimes it is included into the genus Ichthyaetus which regarded here as a subgenus. In breeding plumage, it has a long and red bill, with black tip and yellow legs. Head and neck is black. The species is endemic to Red Sea. Several records from UAE, Oman, Eastern Mediterranean coasts, including Turkiye.

I think it will be the first post of this species in TN. I hope you will like it.
All the best.

Hello Ahmet, and congratulations on a new species for TN.
What a pretty bird indeed, and all dressed up in it's best attire for this photo. I love the contrasting colors in it's plumage and the super sharp focus you managed to obtain.
The vivid white eye ring really adds something to it's overall attractive features. A top class shot in my book!!
