PANAJI: Goan birders and a few forest officials tramping around the bigger wetlands in North Goa on their annual water fowl count have something to rejoice after a long time - the sighting of rarely seen black-legged Kittiwake.
This seabird species from the gull is not a regular visitor to India and hardly eight sightings have been reported so far. During the last few days, the little gull has been spotted by some birders at the Morjim sandbank.
"A few persons have seen it," a source from Goa Bird Conservation Network (GBCN) said, but declined to provide more details.
