News in From France and Further News of Herring Gull White 0P0

Today I received reports of two of my cr Lesser Black-backed Gulls from France. The first involved Black 0.C7 (ringed as a chick on Burhou on 10 July 2009). This gull had been reported early in 2010 in Saint Cyr-sur-Loire (Benjamin Griard) and Maine-et-Loire (Fabrice Rayer). Today I learnt that it had been seen as early as 27/08/09 at Le Vivier-sur-Mer, Manche, France (Cyril Maurer).

I also received news today that LBBG White 0T5 - an adult female ringed in our garden at Ty Coed, Vale Marais on 24 May 2009 (and seen four times at Chouet landfill until 22/08/09) had been seen on 19/02/10 at Glaintain Landfill, Saint-Fraimbault de Prières, Mayenne, France (Daviod Madiot). This gull had already been observed at La Séguinière, Maine-et-Loire on 04/12/09 (Alain Fossé), and at Noyant, Soulaire-et-Bourg, Maine-et-Loire on 11/02/10 (Fabrice Rayer).

Finally César Álvarez  very kindly informed me that Herring Gull White 0P0 (the subject of the blog posting earlier today) had also been seen at  Avilés estuary, Spain (43.35N 05.55W) on 19.03.08.
