That Serbian Mediterranean Gull

Finally (better late than never) had details back of the red colour-ringed Mediterranean Gull Y168 present at the Gann from 24/12/2020 to 11/04/2021 (I recorded it 7 times during that period).

It was ringed at Palićko jezero (46° 4'29.80"N 19°43'6.54"E) on 17/06/2020, and in a straight line it travelled 1,916km to get here.  Mind blowing stuff!

Here is a photo of it, taken on 07/02/2021, not looking best pleased with life in Pembrokeshire....
