And...at last I'm back in the field...and just in time!
After very little time in the field recording gulls since the turn of the year, I just had to get out in the drizzle this morning. Visibility was poor...but as expected I very soon found some Lesser Black-backed Gulls on Pembroke Beach...and three of them were carrying our colour rings. Two had been in Iberia for the winter...and I was lucky enough to see one of them (B8AL5) at Eirol Landfill. Portugal (with Tim van Nus and Pedro Moreira) in November. That was such a nice reward for the brief session this morning! It feels really good to know that our LBBGs are returning now in force for the 2015 season!
