Black-headed Gull - Red 2A55

Aaron Devlin got in touch again to say that he had seen another colour-ringed black-headed gull at the weekend.

This time, it was 2A55.

I sent the record off to Iain Livingstone of Clyde Ringing Group in Scotland and he promptly got back in touch to let us know that this bird was ringed as a pulli at Carron Valley Reservoir on 25 June this year.

Red - Carron Valley Reservoir
Blue - Connswater, Belfast

Other than two, fairly local re-sightings, this is their first "proper" keep an eye out for BHG with red rings and hopefully we can get a few more for Iain and the Clyde RG.
