A quick drive down Guernsey’s west coast this morning resulted in around 200 Lesser Black-backed Gulls being seen – c 100 at L’Eree Beach, with 60 at Perelle and 40 at Vazon. These birds included nine of my colour ringed adults, as well as Black 1AF8 the one and only juvenile LBBG from Sark seen fledged this autumn (so far!). The other main excitement was LBBG Blue DHC observed in the small flock at L’Eree Beach. This bird had been ringed at Gloucester Landfill, England in May 2008.
