A very quick trip to Chouet before work this morning saw me record another three colour ringed LBBGs which have returned to Guernsey – Black 7K9, 7T8 and 5AC3 (the last of which was observed at Aveiro, Portugal in December 2011 – Tim van Nus). This brings to eight the number of my colour ringed LBBGs which I have now seen back in the Island this year. An adult Yellow-legged Gull was on the beach at Chouet, while I was also very pleased to catch up with the Polish colour-ringed Black-headed Gull White TETT, originally seen in Guernsey last week by Vic and Jill Froome. All in all a very worthwhile trip to the beach this morning!
