Quite what an adult Common Gull was doing at Chouet Landfill Beach this morning is a bit of a mystery. This species does not breed in the Channel Islands, and it is not at all common even in winter! Apart from that it was a pretty ordinary session early this morning with 69 colour ring readings of my Lesser Black-backed Gulls and seven Great Black-backed Gulls.
