...and Another Great Black-backed Gull from Norway

The weather was worse today with frequent rain showers and gale force winds around dawn. L'Eree Beach was the place to be with a flock of c100 Great Black-backed Gulls and 300+ Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Amongst the GBBGs were Black JX14 (ringed as a chick in Vest-Agder in June 2007 - Morten Helberg) and Green E.44 (ringed as a chick in July 2009 on Chausey Islands, Manche, France - Seb Provost).
The only foreign cr LBBG was White C+G, a juvenile ringed by Peter Rock in Bath, England , and which has been seen in Guernsey on 08 an 12 August 2011.
