Retrospective Colour-Ring Reading

I noticed a group of gulls having a cheeky wash and brush-up in the swimming pool below our hotel room. A staff member decided to chase them off and they started to circle around in front of my balcony. My camera was to hand, so I blasted off a few images. Checking through the images later on, I was surprised to see that one of them was colour-ringed and the code was readable. It turned out that it had been ringed on the Isle of Pladda, Isle of Arran, Ayrshire, Scotland as a chick last summer.
