Ring a ding ding


Picked up on this lesser black backed gull in midweek feeding on burger scraps in the car park of TK Maxx in Newport. At the time it wasn't close enough to make out the colour ring so made a return visit this evening armed with some stale Braces. It didn't disappoint and was soon bated within camera range, although I got some odd looks from Halfords staff on a fag break! Colour ring clearly depicting A:D so will endeavour to determine origin and report back in due course.
