In less than ideal conditions at Chouet landfill Beach this morning I recorded just under 100 cr Lesser Black-backed Gulls (all local birds having returned from wintering outside the Islands). Other highlights included two well-known immature Great Black-backed Gulls ringed in SW Norway, and adult and 3rd calendar year Yellow-legged Gulls.
Chouet Landfill Beach - yes more rain and more wind!
