What an Old GBBG!

For the first 90 minutes after dawn today, I enjoyed some very close views of feeding gulls at Chouet Landfill. There were less than 10 LBBGs present, but plenty of cr Herring Gulls (160+ reads taken), and GBBGs (nine ring reads - including one bird I ringed as a chick on islands north of Herm in June 1993, making it older than two decades!).
GBBG E5506 - 20+ yrs old!
