The other colour ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls originated from:-
Norway (6), Denmark (5), Germany (3), Iceland (4),The Netherlands (25), Belgium (14), England (20), Wales (4), France (2) and Portugal (1).
The principal sites visited were Quarteira/Vilamoura Beaches, Portimao Fish Port, Porto de Lagos Landfill and Tavira saltpans.
Other colour rings were read on White Storks (Portugal (2) and Germany (1)), Mediterranean Gulls (Belgium (2), France (5), Italy (1) and Hungary (1)), Yellow-legged Gull (Portugal )1)) and Audouin’s Gulls (Spain (2)).
As well as some superb gull watching, it was also a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday in some much warmer weather than we have back home in Guernsey at the moment!
