This is just about peak spring arrival time for LBBGs in Guernsey, and it showed at Chouet this weekend. A couple of hours in the landfill produced stunning views of the gulls at very close range - and with c60 colour ring reads taken on each of two days there was plenty of action to enjoy. Many of the birds are freshly arrived back from wintering grounds in Iberia or northern France. The Iceland Gull was apparently seen again on Friday morning. At least five French ringed Great Black-backed Gulls were also present at the landfill.
