Black-headed Gull - White TY34

In my update last week, I reported seeing two Polish colour-ringed black-headed gulls at Antrim, T35J which wintered there last winter too, and a new bird.


The new bird was also sporting a white ring and the code read, TY34. Reporting it via the Polish Bird Ringing Centre website, I received feedback the next day which told me that it had been ringed as a second-winter bird on 9 February 2012 at Olsztyn in Poland.

My re-sighting on 29 October is the first for this bird and is a movement of 1728 km.
