Another Great Black-backed Gull from France

Today's highlight at Chouet landfill Beach was the sighting of Great Black-backed Gull Black 01E - a chick ringed in Seine-Maritime, France in the summer of 2009 (Gilles Le Guillou). This is the 24th Great Black-backed Gull recorded in Guernsey from Gilles' project based at Le Havre.

I was lucky to be able to scan a good flock of gulls on Chouet Beach before the dog walkers arrived.
