British-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls in Guernsey

I have recently received the original ringing details for four of the Lesser Black-backed Gulls that were seen in 2010 in Guernsey with metal rings only (i.e. no colour rings). Reading metal rings is very difficult (as the inscriptions are so small), and for every full code recorded I have usually taken only a part of the code on several others! However…as these four birds show…it is worth making the effort!
