Ringing News: At least six of the Mediterranean Gull seen today were colour-ringed. The bird above is from Langstone Harbour, Hampshire. This the ninth from this scheme recorded onsite this autumn, a great return from the 120 they ringed this year. Also on site today a Mauritanian ringed Sanderling for it's fourth day.
