Lots of Great Black-backed Gulls and a Herring Gull from Essex

An hour at Chouet on Saturday morning (4th December) was very productive with two new Great Black-backed Gulls from Chausey Islands, France (Seb Provost)- both 1st years (Green J.73 and Green J.97). There were more than 150 Great Black-backed Gulls at Chouet landfill or on the adjacent beach - which is a good count.

There were also several thousand Herring Gulls present. 70 locally colour ringed birds were recorded, along with Orange FP3T , a 1st year bird ringed by the North Thames Gull Group at Pitsea Landfill, Essex, England.
Finally, there were three Lesser Black-backed Gulls - including a superb Larus fuscus intermedius.
