More on the wing tagged Lesser black backed gull

Thanks for posting this Steve - its actually only the ninth record of a Spanish-ringed Lesser B in Britain or Ireland!We've had nearly 2,200 from B&I to Spain, but this is just a reflection of where birds are ringed/colour-ringed. It'll be interesting to see if this project leads to an increase in sightings of Spanish birds over the summer.
