Black-headed Gull from Berkshire

A nice quick reply with details of the ringed Black-head Gull seen in the Teifi Estuary yesterday.

26L0 was ringed as a pullus at Hosehill, just SW of Reading in June 2013, seen in the colony shortly after fledging and then reported at The Nevern Estuary, Newport last September by Sam. This is the first record of it since then.

The tide for the next few days is perfect for evening gull watching from the easy Webley Hotel location. There must be some more ringed birds to find.
