Mediterranean Gull - Green RJN5

A day or two after Cameron reported seeing Med Gull E742 at Whitehead, he photographed another colour-ringed Med Gull at the same site.

This was juvenile with a green ring, RJN5.

We heard back that this individual had been ringed as a chick on 29 June at Polder de Sebastopol, Vendee in France. Cameron's report is the first since ringing, which isn't surprising as it had only been ringed 5 weeks earlier. 

Many thanks to Cameron for the photo and reporting it and to Camile for the information.
