It is fabulous to see Salva's careful rehabilitation of this gull rewarded by the gull making a complete recovery enabling it to make the 1,450 km migration up to Guernsey. It is unusual for Lesser Black-backed Gulls to stop off on spring migration for several days - and so with this gull already spending a week here, it will be interesting to see if it is in fact a "Guernsey Gull"!
