Belgian Mediterranean Gull Back in Guernsey for 6th Autumn

On a largely uninspiring weekend for gull watching here in Guernsey, the highlight was the sighting on Cobo Beach of Mediterrenean Gull White 3E90, originally ringed at its nesting colony in Zandvlietsluis, Antwerpen, Belgium. This is the 6th consecutive autumn that this gull has visited Guernsey. It tends to remain in Guernsey for 6-8 weeks each autumn, before moving on (although the only current record of this bird further south was at Carcavelos, Lisbon, Portugal in January 2007).
