Report Guernsey Colour Ringed Gulls

Sightings of Guernsey colour ringed Gulls can be entered here for an instant life history, or sent to for a life history to be returned by e-mail to observers.

I have now been able to analyse the Lesser Black-backed Gull sightings taken the week before Christmas at Anza, Agadir. The 187 colour ring reads referred to 128 different birds - orginating in the following countries:-

Lesser Black-backed Gulls

Iceland                                 3
Norway                              31
Germany                              6
Denmark                              4
The Netherlands                32
Belgium                              19

France                                  7
Channel Islands                   7
England                              17
Wales                                   2

TOTAL                              128

Many of the project leaders have already supplied the life histories of the birds seen - and it is really interesting how site faithful some of the adult birds are to Anza in different winters.
