More LBBGs back in Guernsey and another Polish Black-headed Gull

It was another very rewarding early morning in the north of the Island today, with 3 more returning colour ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls seen at Chouet - Black 2.X5 and Black 2.N2  had both been recorded this winter in Portugal and Spain respectively, while Black 7F2 had been seen in Le Tanchet, Les Sables d'Olonne, Vendée, France last November.  Also recorded at Chouet were c 150 of my locally colour ringed Herring Gulls - no doubt some of these will have been reported from France this past winter.
At Rousse Beach, Vale the Polish Black-headed Gull White TARM was seen again - a gull ringed at Przykona Reservoir, Radyczyny, Turek, Poland, and which has been reported in Guernsey in the autumns of 2010 and 2011.
