A Med Gull Story

3E71 was already an adult when it was ringed in Belgium in June 2005. Since then it has been reported 52 times by 22 different observers. With this number of sightings it's possible to put together it (apparently a she)'s year.
From March to July she is in the Antwerp area, at times (not always) noted to be breeding. In Aug & Sept she has moved to the Aberystwyth area, then spends Oct to Jan in N Pembs (Fishguard & Newport). Finally in Feb she looks in on N France on the way back to Belgium.
