Ramsey @ a colour-ringed Black-headed Gull

A ringtail Hen Harrier on Ramsey yesterday & today, along with a Short-eared Owl, a Little Owl & a Merlin yesterday, along with a late Wheatear.  This morning at least 3 Bramblings over with a small passage of Chaffinch & Skylarks, and a single female Blackcap (with Lisa Morgan).

Dave Perry found a freshly dead Black-headed Gull at Amroth yesterday, which had a red colour ring 2C05.  Info back from the BTO today, it was ringed as a nestling on 17 June 2014 by Runnymede Ringing Group at Bedfont Lakes, East Bedfont, London, 292km from Amroth.
