283 Gull Colour Rings Read at Chouet this Morning
In what was a very relaxed and enjoyable (if a little chilly) three hours at Chouet landfill today, I recorded 283 colour rings - 153 Herring Gulls, 122 LBBGs and 8 GBBGs.With the tide high many gulls loafed on flat areas in the landfill making ring reading quite straight forward. Amongst the LBBGs were a few of my chicks ringed in 2009 and 2010. I am always very pleased to see these birds coming home as they approach breeding age!
