Darvic Herring Gull

Highlight of this morning at Passage House was a darvic ringed Herring Gull - white 8HP1...

It was ringed on Guernsey on the 24th May 2013 as a 2nd summer, and my recovery is the first one since then.

Other than this, there was slightly more wader action with the first three returning Redshank, an Oystercatcher and 28 Curlew, with 24 Little Egret and 55 Black-headed Gulls. There seems to be two broods (2 and 5) of Shelduck at the moment, so not as successful as last year.

Now, get ready for your daily dose of cuteness...

I wonder how recently it fledged? It's nest is only a few metres away.
And one of the Comb Duck
