Shawell A5 Lagoons

Another session after work on Thursday at the A5 Lagoons proved good. I have found a way of getting a little closer to the gulls, and as a result the colour-ring reading is a easier. Plenty of familiar birds from previous years and some new ones for my ever growing spreadsheet were seen. I have now made 4000 colour-ring readings at Shawell. A moulting juvenile Caspian Gull posed well and amongst a flock of gulls that dropped in last thing was a first-winter Mediterranean Gull.
