A Very Busy Week!
This week has been a whirlwind of activity with the gulls. It is one of the most important weeks of the year for ringing chicks, with a number of colonies being visited. It is clear that Herring Gulls are enjoying one of the best breeding seasons in recent years, while LBBGs and GBBGs also appear to be doing well. Over the past week we've managed to ring just over 200 Herring Gull, 40 GBBG and 47 LBBG chicks. There was no rest today either, as Phil and I took a very nice catch of 46 gulls in the garden (including another 13 LBBGs)! Roll on August...and a rest!
