Lesser Black-backed Gull Exodus

A very quick trip to Pembroke and Chouet Landfill Beaches this morning was markedly different to the pattern so far this summer because of the amazing relative scarcity of Lesser Black-backed Gulls! Clearly the exodus has really picked up pace over the past few days. Further evidence of this came yesterday from Tim Van Nus who observed 23 "Guernsey" colour ringed Lesser Black-backed Gulls in a few hours at Taboeira landfill, northern Portugal (see "Under Construction" Web Site on my Blog List to the right for photos and a report by Tim from Taboeira ).
