Herring Gull White 4.AL2 back home!

Hot on the heels of Herring Gull 5.AV3, which recently returned to Guernsey from Loire-Atlantique, France, comes White 4.AL2. This adult female Herring Gull was ringed on 28 May this year at Chouet landfill. On 29/11/10 and 03/12/10 it was seen at Mesanger, Loire-Atlantique by Vincent Tanqueray and Pascal Bellion respectively. Six days later it was back at Chouet, Guernsey! It is proving to be really fascinating working out the travels of Guernsey's gull populations!

Saturday 11 December was another fine morning at Chouet, where I recorded 150 locally colour ringed Herring Gulls.
Further down the west coast there were 200+ Great Black-backed Gulls on Perelle and Vazon Beaches. These included three of my colour-ringed birds, as well as Blue 67C from Seine-Maritime, France (Gilles Le Guillou) and Green J.35 from Chausey Islands, France (Seb Provost).
