A busy couple of hours at Chouet Landfill

Chouet landfill 06 May 2010 - PKV

After several days with very few colour rings seen, today was much better. Chouet landfill was particularly busy for Lesser Black-backed Gulls with >450 birds around. 31 of my colour rings were read, but the highlight was a metal ringed Lesser Black-backed Gull, (Jersey E 14864), which Catherine and I had ringed in July 2007 as a chick in one of the small Sark sub-colonies. Another metal ringed LBBG (E 7762) had been ringed as a chick on another of the Sark colonies by Jamie Hooper in July 1999.
