Gulls in the Mist

Chouet Landfill was very atmospheric this morning as a sea mist rolled in over the site. It was never thick enough to hamper another really excellent gull watching session. c 200 colour ring reads were taken, the majority once again LBBGs (observer bias not numerical advantage over Herring Gulls!). With the ringing work pretty much over until deep autumn/winter, I'm really enjoying just watching the gulls...observing their post-breeding interactions. Many are now in moult and look rather more bedraggled than they did at the start of the season. I know now to appreciate the LBBGs in particular as it will not be long before their numbers dwindle.
