Ringed gull sighting

Tim Ball from Reading & Basingstoke Ringing has sent us details of one of the Black-headed Gulls rung at Lea Farm GP.  22P6 was rung here in 2014 and no sightings of the bird had been reported until it was seen at St Jean du Doigt, plage de Plougasnou, Finistere, France on 29/10/15.

This is by no means the only time that one of ‘our’ gulls has been recorded a long distance from where it was rung as a chick.  A full list of the subsequent sightings of birds rung at Lea Farm GP in 2014 can be seen here: All 2014 Lea Farm
