In January this year John Wright from Rutland visited Senegal searching for Ospreys from the Rutland Water Osprey Project. As well as finding lots of Ospreys he also saw quite a few Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Amongst them, you've guessed it, was PB4.T. Quite a coincidence really and the saying 'it's a small world' fits these sightings well.
This is the furthest south a LBB Gull recorded in Leicestershire & Rutland has migrated.
John saw PB4.T at Tiougoune, Senegal, which is between Dakar and Saint Louis.
Thanks to John for allowing me to show you his splendid illustration.
