Black-headed Gull - EW83177

Lowell Mills got in touch recently with some information on several Black-headed Gulls he'd seen in "oop north" earlier this winter.

The first bird, which Lowell saw was at East Strand in Portrush back in early September. It wasn't colour-ringed but he managed to read and report the number on the metal BTO ring. 

He heard back that this bird had been ringed as a nestling on 12 June 2010 at North Esk reservoir in the Scottish Borders making it a movement of 209km.

Blue - Portrush, Northern Ireland
Red - North Esk reservoir, Scotland
