Charmouth - Wed 3rd Aug

Some news hot off the press about the adult male Lesser Black-backed Gull (Black 5AU2) I reported on the beach at Charmouth on Monday. It was ringed in May 2013 in Guernsey and since then it has been seen periodically mainly in the Channel Islands but also on the west coast of France in the Vendee at Les Sable D'Olonne last October 15. The previous sighting to mine was at Axmouth by a Birder I know there (Ian Mc.) 20 days ago on 11th July 2016. So at time of sighting the bird was 1168 days old.  Many thanks to the Paul Veron for the quick response (
