Another fine morning at Chouet

LBBG White 7.T2 - Chouet Landfill - PKV
A couple of hours before work at Chouet Landfill yesterday once again proved most productive with another 140 gull colour ring reads.  Just over 100 of these were Herring Gulls, with 33 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and the rest Great Black-backed Gulls. Apart from one of the English-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gull (Blue CHN), which nests in Guernsey and one Jersey-ringed Herring Gull (Green BTJ) all the birds were of local origin. There were a few more juvenile gulls on Chouet Landfill Beach in particular, but no new colour-ringed birds of the year were recorded today.
