Mediterranean Gull - White E742

Local birdwatcher, Cameron Moore, got in touch last week to report a sighting of a colour-ringed Mediterranean Gull at the seafront at Whitehead, County Antrim.

Originally ringed in The Netherlands, this is the same bird which both Cameron and I reported at Glynn in Larne Lough back in April (see here). Cameron's report is the first since those re-sightings.

Many thanks to Cameron for reporting the sighting and the photo and to Camille for the information.
