Black-headed Gull - White T01W

The final bird which Lowell got in touch about was another colour-ringed bird, also seen in Coleraine.

T01W was recorded at Christie Park at the end of November and was originally ringed on 9 July 2011 as a first year bird in Mrezezyno, Gryfice, Poland. This means that this bird travelled at least 1410km, but chances are it took a much longer route to get to get here to spend the winter on the River Bann.

Many thanks for Lowell for passing on the information about these ringed birds, it's much appreciated.

Blue - Coleraine, Northern Ireland
Red - Gryfice, Poland
