Went out to Penrhos Coastal Park / Beddmanarch Bay this afternoon to have a bit of a practice with a new camera and lens I have invested in. There had been 3 Med Gulls reported from there during the week, so I thought it might offer a 'photo opportunity.
Quickly noticed a green darvic ringed juvenile, ASJZ which colour ringed site suggested was from Germany. Thanks to a very quick response from Andreas at the Hamburg Med Gull team, I now know that this was ringed as a chick as recently as 10/06/16 at Leipzig. It has now travelled 1170 km and is the 4th of 39 chicks ringed in Leipzig which has now been reported abroad.
