Just Like Days of Old...!

Although it's been a good start to the season for recording colour ringed gulls Chouet Landfill Beach has, so far, not quite been as exciting as in previous years. However, yesterday reminded me of the Halcyon days for the site with a large number of gulls settled for a long time, and much territorial and courtship display on the beach. The rising tide brought the gulls closer and closer. Only the dull weather prevented some really excellent photographs (by my standards). In just under three hours c 250 colour ring readings were taken.
