A Nice Weekend with Gulls

I spent an enjoyable 90 minutes recording gull colour rings at Chouet on Saturday morning, when the highlights were a few of my returning immature Lesser Black-backed Gulls, which had been ringed in 2009 or 2010 on Burhou, Alderney. One of these birds Black 0.P9 was known to have wintered that year in the Algarve, Portugal ( in fact i saw it  myself while on holiday at Quarteira in December 2009!).
On Sunday, Chris, Phil, Carolyn and I managed a couple of small gull catches to colour ring another 30 gulls, which included three more Lesser Black-backed Gulls.
