Hard Work at Chouet

In recent days I've spent two early mornings at Chouet landfill. The weather conditions with very strong northerly winds and frequent showers have made gull recording very difficult, and I have missed more ring reads on my returning Lesser Black-backed Gulls than I've actually made (eight in total). Eventually I managed c 150 Herring Gull ring reads and 44 GBBGs (including 12 French and two English - all birds that have been recorded previously at some point in Guernsey). A half-hearted attempt to ring our first few gulls of the year in the garden on Sunday morning looks like ending with yet another blank! And finally there is still not a sign this winter of either a Glaucous or Iceland Gull in Guernsey...although we live in hope!
