Mediterranean Gull - White 3KNT

Ronald Surgenor got in touch via Facebook to let me know of a colour-ringed Med Gull which he had photographed at Portrush, County Antrim.

The first year bird was fitted with a white ring with 3KNT inscribed on it.

I passed on the details of who to contact and he heard back a short time later from Camille Duponcheel that this bird had been ringed as a chick in the Netherlands by Frank Majoor on 27 June.

Ronald's re-sighting is the first since ringing.

Many thanks to Ronald for the report and to Camille for the information.
