A white colour-ringed Black-headed Gull seen today 'T7VE' was ringed as a chick (pullus) in at Borowko, Pobiedziska, located in the middle west part of Poland in June 2012, and this is the fifth year it has been seen at Dawlish Warren, generally late-June to early-Sep. 

This, the first three-figure count on site of returning Curlew, was today on a date fits the general pattern shown since 1999 of this threshold count being met in mid- to late-June.
