First autumn sightings in Iberia of Lesser Black-backed Gulls breeding in Guernsey in 2010

Exciting news today came from Manuel Figueiras who reported two adult Lesser Black-backed Gulls from Lariño, Carnota, A Coruña, NW Spain. Black 1.R0 had been ringed in May 2010 in our garden at Ty Coed, Guernsey, and had then been seen at its breeding colony in Sark in June, Black 2.F8 was ringed at Chouet landfill on 27 May 2010, and then seen on L'Ancresse Common, Guernsey on 15 July 2010.

Chouet Landfill Beach was surprisingly full of gulls this morning (given that the landfill is closed on Sundays).

On L'Ancresse Common a small flock of Lesser Black-backed Gulls included Blue JLL, which had been ringed in May 2010 (as a 2nd summer) at Gloucester Landfill, England by the Severn Estuary Gull Group.
