..and another of Gilles' Great Black-backed Gull's from Seine-Maritime

Amazingly another of Gilles Le Guillou's Great Black-backed Gulls was on Chouet Beach this morning. This was Blue 67C, which must have been ringed as a chick in June 2008.This is now the 25th bird from Gilles' project which I've seen in Guernsey over the past two years.

None of the 22 colour-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls recorded today were new arrivals for the spring.

Of considerable interest to me are some reports coming in now from Spain of my 1st summer Lesser Black-backed Gulls ringed on Burhou last July. Over the next couple of days I will post a blog on this subject.
