Happy New year everyone!
One of the Great Black-backed Gull chicks ringed on Looe Island on 24/06/13 has been sighted in Spain. L:BB9 was reported on 29/12/13 at Nemiña beach, Muxía, A Coruña NW Spain (43.00N – 9.16W). This is a movement of 893km and is only the 2nd bird from the Looe project recorded in Spain.

With all this horrible weather many gulls are seeking sanctuary in sheltered bays, estuaries and harbours. There have been many recent sightings in Looe with others at Coverack, Mevagissey, Dawlish Warren, on the Camel Estuary and in Guernsey. Now that the 2010 birds are in near adult plumage it is worth checking any GBB for rings.
Thanks to everyone involved in the project.
