Ringed Common Gull

The Norwegian ringers let you report direct to their data base. So, Common Gull J5R1, at Newport today, was ringed as an adult nester near Bergen in June 2011, & apart from 1 nearby sighting a few days later hasn't been reported again till today.
Also a subadult Herring Gull with an un numbered pink wing tag (about which it was clearly most unhappy). the crbirding website was unhelpfull. Is it part of a local project?.
