More ring reads at Chouet Landfill

Chouet Landfill - 29 July 10 - PKV
Viewing conditions at Chouet landfill were again excellent this morning, and an hour before work was very productive. Herring Gulls dominated on the tipping face, while the Lesser Black-backed Gulls nipped in quickly for thier feeds and then settled on quiet areas on the landfill (as it was near high tide). 128 ring reads were taken - including two partial reads of British metal-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls (both birds can be narrowed to within 100 birds).
Black 2.C3 showed characteristics in the hand when ringed of being a hybrid Lesser Black-backed x Herring Gull - so it will be interesting to see how its plumage develops over time! - PKV
LBBG Black 4.C1 ringed on nesting grounds on Burhou on 13 June 10 - PKV
