BIRDWATCHERS have been getting in a flutter as a rarely seen giant gull has been making an appearance.

A glaucous gull — the second largest gull in the world — has been spotted flying around the RSPB’s Wombwell Ings site.

Only around 170 of the birds winter in the UK, mainly along the coast, and very few are seen inland.

The last glaucous gull was seen in the area more than a decade ago.
