Interesting movement of Lesser Black-backed Gull north-east to Suffolk, England

Larus fuscus Black 0.K1 Burhou 10 July 2009 - Catherine Veron
A couple of days ago Jon Gibbs saw Lesser Black-backed Gull Black 0.K1 at Minsmere, Suffolk. This is a really exciting record for it is the first of my chicks ringed in July 2009 (on Burhou, Alderney) to be seen further north than the Channel Islands. Jon says that there has been a roost of over a thousand immature Lesser Black-backed Gulls at Minsmere for the past month or so, and the Alderney bird is the most southerly born gull to be recorded in the flock.
