It's been a very quiet few days for colour ring recording. The last couple of runs down the West coast have resulted in only c 20 LBBGs each time, including just a couple of locally colour-ringed birds each time. It's now going to be a quiet three months for LBBGs, before the earliest birds start from wintering grounds returning in mid-January next year.
A very quick visit to Chouet landfill Beach resulted in a few GBBG sightings, including an English bird (White P:32A ringed as a chick at Portland Harbour, Dorset in June 2012) and a French bird (Blue 91D - ringed as a chick at Le Havre, Seine-Maritime in June 2009, and recorded in Guernsey most autumns since).
