The Gull ringing season commences

The highlight today was the start of the gull ringing season. A couple of adult Herring Gulls were trapped in our garden (Ty Coed) and fitted with colour rings 6.AA7 and 6.AA9.

PS You can tell it is the start of the season - because I managed to fit the first colour ring reading from top to bottom (i.e.upside down)!

Still not much sign of any further Lesser Black-backed Gull migration, although it is wonderful to see flocks of several hundred (local) LBBGs gathered on Chouet and Chouet landfill Beaches early in the morning.
