Black-headed Gull - Black P309

Back in December I recorded a colour-ringed Black-headed Gull in the car park at Castlewellan Forest Park which, I knew from my sighting of P736 last winter (see here), was a Lithuanian ringed bird.

I reported it to the Lithuanian Bird Ringing Centre and earlier this month I heard back that the bird was ringed on 29 March 2010 by Vytautas Pareigis and Frank Majoor at Dumpi┼│ s─ůvartynas in western Lithuania.

This was the first sighting of the bird since ringing.

Many thanks to Lithuanian Bird Ringing Centre for providing the information.
