More Gulls at Chouet
A shorter than usual effort this Saturday at Chouet resulted in 86 ring reads (81 Herring and five Great Black-backed Gulls) - all local birds - except two well-known French GBBGs - Blue 30C (Le Havre, Seine-Maritime - Gilles Le Guillou) and Green J.60 (Chausey Islands - Seb Provost). Constant light rain and poor light didn't really help viewing conditions, but the rising tide did push the loafing gulls close to the car.
