Common Gull - Yellow 2A64

Earlier this month, Cameron Moore photographed a juvenile Common Gull on rocks at Whitehead, Belfast Lough with a yellow colour-ring.

Gareth reported the sighting to Iain Livingstone from Clyde Ringing Group and we have heard back from Iain confirming that this bird had been ringed at a colony in South Lanarkshire in July this year. This is the first re-sighting since ringing.

Many thanks to Cameron for reporting his sighting and to Gareth and Iain for passing on the information.
