And yet another old Great Black-backed Gull!

A very quick look at Chouet Landfill Beach this morning enabled me to read another metal ring on a GBBG, and this one proved to be another 20+ year old gull. I ringed Jersey E4960 as a chick in June 1992, and hadn't recorded it again until today...when it is now more than 22 years and two months old - absolutely fantastic!
