A great day today with c 50 LBBGs back at Chouet - including 16 colour ringed birds. Six of these gulls were recorded over the winter in Spain (three), Portugal (two) and France (one). The weather is not yet spring-like, but it would seem that the early returning birds can wait no longer.Most birds were seen on the beach at low tide - too far for photography. I'm just very happy that the flood gates are opening and now virtually by the day I can expect more and more LBBGs back on our beaches!
