Information now received confirms the above lesser black-backed gull photographed at Tredegar House Lake earlier this month was indeed ringed locally. To be precise on Flat Holm Island Cardiff on 08/07/12.
Elsewhere remember the long staying Dutch ringed black headed gull from Cwmbran Boating Lake in 2010? News on this, is, there's still no news! The Dutch ringing scheme needs to pull its finger out (of the dyke) or I'm going to black list it!
