Mick Dryden and Tony Paintin in Jersey both regularly report Guernsey colour-ringed Herring Gulls in Jersey, demonstrating how frequently many birds presumed nesting or born in Jersey visit Chouet Landfill. Today Mick set a new record for a single day with reports of 20 different cr Herring Gulls at Le Pulec on Jersey's North-west coast. From Mick's photo below you can see the attraction - a very nice pile of seaweed, driven ashore by the strong winds, which no doubt is providing some excellent feeding conditions.
