Despite the cold and windy weather the LBBGs have been pouring back into Guernsey these past few days. This is evidenced by the fact that during the past three mornings I've recorded 211 observations of cr LBBGs at Chouet. Of course some are repeat sightings...but the total includes many birds seen for the first time this spring.
After a month or so of quite difficult observation conditions at the landfill, it is coming good at just the right time, with some incredibly close and enjoyable views of the gulls as they feed. A very big thank you to the landfill staff who help me enormously with the gull studies. Without their fantastic co-operation we would simply not be getting the quality data that is building almost by the day!
