Hi All,

As part of my wildlife rescue work I trasported a bird from a vet to a carer 
this evening. The bird was identified by the rescuer as an Arctic Jaeger. As I 
am not that familiar with pelagic birds I have posted some photos for others to 
view. The bird was found exhausted at Ricket's point 3 days ago. It apparently 
could not even stand on it's feet. I believe the bird is an Arctic Yaeger, 
possibly a juvenile although I would like to be sure. See the photos at

Cheers, Paul
