A really fabulous couple of hours after dawn at Pembroke and Chouet Landfill were very well rewarded with more than 200 colour ring reads. One of the Sark-ringed LBBG chicks was on Pembroke (the first of the year), while Lesser Black-backed Gulls were present in large numbers (c 700) at Chouet landfill. This total included an astounding number of unringed birds, surely indicating that there were a fair few migrants amongst them (but no foreign colour rings). There were also two Yellow-legged Gulls in the Landfill - one adult and one 3rd calendar year bird.
