Seen this morning at 7:11am flying steadily North past Cape Spear.

Did it come from the North American population or European/Iceland population of Little Gulls? Who knows.

Surprisingly, there is another late April record for Newfoundland from L'Anse aux Meadows (1995).

Hard to know if this is a vanguard of other European birds in the region - more probable though is that it's just a lost bird and its appearance has something to do with the huge Low pressure system that passed East of us just yesterday.

4 screenshots from the few seconds of video I managed to capture:
