Another Alderney Lesser Black-backed Gull sighted in Morocco

Some very exciting news just in is the sighting of another Lesser Black-backed Gull, colour-ringed on Burhou, Alderney in July 2010, in Morocco. Black 6.A7 was seen on 06 January 2011 over 1,750 km from its natal colony at Oued Sebou, Kenitra just to the north of Rabat by Simon Claden.

On Saturday I managed to get to Chouet for 90 minutes first thing in the morning. Conditions were far from ideal with light drizzle and grey skies. However...for the first time this year more than 100 colour rings were read - 127 Herring Gulls and nine Great Black-backed Gulls (including two from Chausey Islands, France (Seb Provost) and one from Seine-Maritime, France (Gilles Le Guillou).
