Ringed Herring Gull Recovery

I saw a colour ringed Herring Gull before Christmas at Rainton Meadows DWT. This afternoon I got some information back on the colour ringed Gull and where about it had been since its sighting at Rainton. Here is the reply for all who may be interested:

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for reporting your sighting of a colour ringed Herring Gull. Herring Gull with orange ring 1975 was ringed on the 30th November 2007 on Seamer Carr landfill, near Scarborough, North Yorkshire (TA038820) , as a third winter bird with metal BTO ring number GN78392. I have received one other sighting of this bird since it was ringed, on the 12th February 2008 on Gloucester landfill, near Hampstead, Gloucester, (SO816173).

Thank you for  taking the time to report this sighting. If you have any questions, or any more sightings, please let me know

Kind Regards

Sara Bone
