A couple of reports (ringed birds) etc.

The first shot is of a Herring gull juv. taken yesterday in Marine park, South Shields. Almost 3 weeks now since the bird was picked up here (to the best of my knowledge) and it's still hanging about. Despite a few folk sending reports off, there's been no data sent back regarding this bird as yet as far as I know.

The second shot is of a G.B.B. gull juv. taken at North Shields fish quay whilst the 'white winger' show was taking place.  Within a few day's of sending a email (to the wrong ringing group) they passed it onto the 'right' one and despite the poor shot submitted -this bird was recorded.

Ringed in Norway as a bairn last year. ( permission required about sharing data publicly with some ringing groups).
