Black-headed Gull - Black P309

Back in December I recorded a colour-ringed Black-headed Gull in the car park at Castlewellan Forest Park which, I knew from my sighting of P736 last winter (see here), was a Lithuanian ringed bird.

I reported it to the Lithuanian Bird Ringing Centre and earlier this month I heard back that the bird was ringed on 29 March 2010 by Vytautas Pareigis and Frank Majoor at Dumpių sąvartynas in western Lithuania.

This was the first sighting of the bird since ringing.

Many thanks to Lithuanian Bird Ringing Centre for providing the information.
