H - 145580

Whilst sharing our rather good fish 'n' chips with the multitudes of Herring Gulls I noticed a ringed individual. Fortunately I had the bins with me so in time the ring was read - it was probably ringed up in Durham or Sunderland, there used to be a big gull ringing project up there.

I also noticed this bird with a very damaged lower leg and foot and then found another similarly damaged. The perils of professional fish 'n'chip robbery perhaps. H - 145580 did not hang around for a photo opportunity.

Phone vid and pix thus the less than excellent quality.
