I've just returned from an excellent trip to Portugal, based in the Algarve.

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?
