A Record Breaking Morning at Chouet Landfill

With cold weather and a big high tide soon after dawn, it was always going to be a good session at Chouet landfill this morning - but I did not expect a record breaking morning. The highlights included:-

  1. 2 or 3 adult Yellow-legged Gulls - including White 1CA9, which we ringed at Chouet last May (but unfortunately it remained unrecorded again until today);
  2. A 1st Winter Iceland Gull;
  3. 10 returning ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls; and
  4. A staggering 234 colour ringed Herring Gulls.
All in all it was one of the most enjoyable ring reading sessions for a long time!
