The birding was great with many highlights including somewhere in the region of 100 Booted Eagles and other raptors circling overhead.
I couldn't leave the gulls alone and ended up reading 60 different colour ring readings.
I am overwhelmed with paperwork as a result, but I will write a full trip report shortly.
The gull below was ringed by Peter Stewart, whose gulls regularly turn up at Shawell, so I was pleased to see it. The pose is great don't you think?
