We started off by finding and ringing a couple of Herring Gull chicks.
|Herring Gull chick|
|Great Black-backed Gull chick|
The evening was finished with the ringing of the three Blackbird chicks that were in a nest in my garden.
So all in all a good evening of ringing with a few more birds/species than expected. Last year at the gull colony we ringed 1 Herring Gull and 31 Great Black-backed Gulls, this year we did two of the former and 25 of the latter.
