Gulls in the Mist - Lots of Them!

With more and more Lesser Black-backed Gulls returning to the Island now from their winter travels, I'm spending a short time at Chouet most mornings to try to record lots of our colour ringed birds. 150 different cr LBBGs yesterday morning was my highest count so far this year. Earlier in the week I saw one of Peter Rock's LBBGs Red D:Y, ringed as a chick in Gloucester, England in June 2008. Yesterday a new GBBG (White L:AZ7) from Looe Island, Cornwall, England was recorded, along with long staying GBBG P:43A from Portland Harbour, Dorset, England.The cool misty weather of the last couple of days is clearly not holding back gull migration!
Today the fog is so thick I can barely see the beach!!
