Four Foreigners!

That was the tally of foreign colour-ringed gulls on Chouet Beach and Bordeaux Harbour late this afternoon. The Norwegian and French GBBGs were already known, as was the Polish Black-headed Gull, but Herring Gull White A+Z was a new sighting in the Islands of a gull from Peter Rock's urban gull projects running in SW England. Noticeably scare today were Lesser Black-backed Gulls. I would not be surprised if this cold weather has temporarily pushed the early arriving birds back south a little at least until it thaws out.
