There’s a Gull I’ve only seen a few times on the beach. It’s a Mediterranean Gull and it’s a beauty. Luckily it’s wearing jewellery, so I’m able to identify it.
It’s 3PE0. I search for bird ringing schemes for gulls, find the right one, and send an email to the organisers.
Bingo! It was ringed on the 19 June 2020 on De Kreupel Island, in the Netherlands. In 2021 it was seen in France, in 2022 in Bedfordshire and now it’s in South Devon.
I love citizen science.
