Within the last 24 hours I've had welcome news from José Vidal and Antonio Gutierrez that two of the 202 Lesser Black-backed Gull chicks colour-ringed on Burhou, Alderney this summer have reached the beaches of NW Spain. Yesterday José saw Black 0AN0 on Meiras Beach, while today Antonio photographed Black 7AP0 on Esmelle Beach, A Coruna.
