More Gulls

9th November - I spent a bit of time looking through the gulls today.  Pick of the bunch was a nice 1st winter Caspian Gull - it looked pretty big and was probably a male.  Unfortunately, it spent all of its time at the back of the spit, so my photos are very much record only.  I left it at 3pm whilst it was battling with some carrion near the island.

I picked out 3 colour-ringed birds:

BHG - white 507 - the regular Danish rung bird
BHG - black R34A - the 4th sighting of a French rung bird
LBBG - red KB3T - another regular LMGP bird returning after last being seen in March

After I left, Jackie N and Malcolm P found a nice adult winter Med Gull.
