The movements of Guernsey nesting Herring Gulls outside the breeding season are interesting, for while some birds remain in Guernsey all year, others (including 1st winter, immature and adult birds) disperse to France - with the most common direction being south to Vendee. A smaller number of birds move north to the south coast of England with a few birds reaching the landfill sites around Gloucester.
