New record of Long-tailed Jaeger (Stercorarius longicaudus) off Liguria (NW Italy)
In this work we revise past observations of Long-tailed Jaeger Stercorarius longicaudus in Italy and its ecological features in Northern Italy. Moreover, we report the new observation of the species realized in August 2020, of an individual in juvenile plumage that was spotted in front of the town of Imperia. The identification was based on the pictures taken during the sighting. The record, following one in Genoa in 1991, is the second for this species in the Ligurian Region, and it is the first sighting in the western part of the region.
