Guernsey LBBGs watch Spanish Football?!

In recent weeks I have received a very nice series of sightings by Mercedes Fernandez of Guernsey-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls from the Manzanares River in Madrid, Spain. I had not appreciated until Javier Marchamalo sent me photos last night just how "urban" these gulls the river flows adjacent to the football stadium of Atletico Madrid.  below are Javier's photos of the site, and Mercedes' photos of some of the gulls which are being seen at the river.

  1. Nice experience! Manzanares river bank has been fixed and adapted to pedestrians, so actually, as the water level is low, has become a hot place for bathing LBBG!

    Cheers friend
