Bordeaux Harbour (Herm Island in background) - P K Veron
Amongst the Herring Gulls was White 5.XX9 - ringed as a chick in June 2009 on Longue Pierre islet (to the north of Herm), and White 1.RR0 (ringed as a 1st summer female on 10 May 2009 in our garden at Ty Coed).

I also came across Great Black-backed Gull Green E.87 (which I had seen earlier in the day at Chouet landfill). Ringed on Chausey Islands - Seb Provost.

To finish off I popped into the adjacent Banque Imbert car-park (where gulls are often fed scraps by people at lunchtime). Jersey E 15061 (1st winter) Herring Gull was tame enough to read the metal ring here. This bird was ringed as a chick in June 2009 at Jerbourg Cliffs by Chris Mourant.
