LBBG Blue HLZ Rocquaine Bay - 18 September 2010 - PKV
LBBG Blue HLZ Chouet landfil 22 August 2009 - PKV
This gull was ringed in May 2009 as an adult at Gloucester Landfill, England (Severn Estuary Gull Group), and was subsequently seen several times there in July 2009. Following the sighting last autumn in Guernsey, John Sanders has seen this gull again this summer at the landfills around Gloucester (from 25 June to 04 September). These records indicate that this is a bird which nests in SW England.
Other highlights included two French-colour-ringed Great Black-backed Gulls - both known birds here - Green E.78 (Chausey Islands, France - Seb Provost) and Blue 94C Le Havre, Seine-Maritime, France (Gilles Le Guillou).
Black-headed Gull White TARM (Poland) was also still at Bellegreve Bay today shortly after dawn.
