Pensarn German Med Gull info.

I have received details of the Pensarn adult Mediterranean Gull that I saw there last weekend. Below is the database for the bird's travels as well as a picture of it at the nesting site just outside Berlin in Germany and another picture on the beach in Pensarn. The bird must be at least eight years old, as it was caught at the nest as an adult in 2006.
