Another Dutch Lesser Black-backed Gull

Gulls on Pembroke - 16 September 2010 - PKV
A quick trip down the north and west coasts this morning before work, provided a total of just over 200 adult Lesser Black-backed Gulls. This is a little less than in recent days, and the turnover of birds seems to be high. The only cr bird seen amongst these flocks was Black 3.K0 - a breeding adult from Burhou, Alderney, which is now on passage in Guernsey.

The highlight was a juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull feeding in the surf on Pembroke Beach. This was White KL - which was ringed on 02 July at Veerse Meer, Middelplaten, Zeeland, The Netherlands by Roland-Jan Buijs (who was himself in Guernsey this summer!).
