Over the next few months we’ll hopefully come across quite a few colour ringed gulls. Most of these will be Mediterranean Gulls from all over Europe. One of the first to arrive back this autumn was R13U who appeared at Radipole on the 11th October last year. This year it re-appeared on the 3rd October and has been seen regularly since then. It was ringed at a chick in Pas-de-Calais in France on the 15th June 2009.
We’ll keep you up to date with Sightings of these Gulls. I am currently waiting on news of a bird from Poland and Hungary so stay tuned!
