The Beaches are Turning into Gull Crèches!

It is fantastic at the moment to go to Pembroke or Chouet beaches for many juvenile gulls (Herring and Lesser Black-backed) are to be found playing at the edge of the sea…picking at anything floating or being tossed in on the waves. So far I’ve spotted 13 of our colour ringed juvenile Herring Gulls (from Jethou and Lihou Islands) and four Lesser Black-backed Gulls (all from Sark). The Alderney gulls are usually a couple of weeks later in their breeding…so hopefully they will begin to turn up here too very shortly!
