Also on 13 February Gabriel Martín saw two of my Lesser Black-backed Gulls at Alcazar de San Juan Landfill, Cuidad Real, Spain. Interestingly both of these gulls had been seen earlier in the winter by members of the Madrid Gull Team. White 0.V8 was originally ringed as a chick on Burhou, Alderney on 19/07/03 (Jamie Hooper et al), but was then caught as a breeding adult on the islet on 13/06/09 by Catherine and me (when we added the colour ring). It was then seen on 27/12/09 and 12/01/10 at Pinto landfill south of Madrid.
