An hour at Chouet this morning gave plenty of evidence of the continuing arrival back in the islands of Lesser Black-backed Gulls which have been absent all winter. The tide was not ideal, but I managed to record 17 of my colour ringed LBBGs, along with c 50 colour ringed Herring Gulls. I would expect the strong arrivals of LBBGs to continue now for several weeks.
