Colour ringed Herring Gull news

On 7th of June, I was carrying out my usual security check of the hide, checking on Common Tern colony and carrying out a general quick check of everything. All spring an increasing number of Herring and Lesser Black-backed Gulls have been loafing on the shingle island from 06:00.

This time a 3CY Herring Gull had an orange ring on it’s left leg, with the number S3VT, I was able to send this information to the BTO’s EURING website and they came back with the details. The North Thames Gull Group ringed the bird at Ockendon landfill in Feb 2019.
