Guernsey Gulls at Malaga, Spain

Fortunately Salva Garcia has been visiting the pre-roost flock of Lesser Black-backed Gulls at Malaga Port, Spain for many winters, and he regularly reports Guernsey colour-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls from this site. In 2011 I was fortunate enough to join Salva and Gabriel Martin on one of their weekend visits to the port. It was a memorable experience! What makes this site so dramatic is the high concentration of LBBGs in a relatively confined area. The gulls do not roost in the harbour, but gather from mid-late afternoon before flying out to sea to roost. This weekend Salva sent the photo below, along with another seven records of Guernsey cr LBBGs - my thanks to Salva for all his hard work in the area!

  1. Nice comment Paul!

    Of course it was a memorable visit! Gulls, good weather and good company ... Who gives more? This work, sometimes thankless, should not be exempt from good times like that!

    I hope Guernsey Gulls have a good winter in Málaga

    Best wishes!
