Lots of Herring Gulls and another French juvenile Great Black-backed Gull

Both Pembroke and Chouet landfill Beaches were covered in many hundreds of gulls this morning - the vast majority being Herring Gulls.
Chouet Landfill Beach 03 September - PKV
Pembroke Bay - 03 September  - PKV
As ever many of the juvenile gulls were  down at the water's edge at Pembroke - where they chase anything that may look vaguely edible. Today I was very impressed with Lesser Black-backed Gull Black 6.K3 (ringed on Burhou in July 2010), which chased off a juvenile Great Black-backed Gull! Amongst the juvenile Herring Gulls were four colour ringed birds including White 6.AL6 and White 6.AP8 (both ringed on Jethou in June 2010),
I was also very pleased to record my third juvenile Great Black-backed Gull ringed on the Chausey Islands, Manche, France by Seb Provost in July 2010 - Green J.98
