West country wanderer

Thanks to another sharp response from Peter Stewart I can bring you information about this colour ringed lesser black backed gull photographed at low tide on the River Usk, Newport last Sunday 6th October.

It was first ringed at Gloucester Landfill Site nr. Hempsted, Gloucestershire on12/4/08. A subsequent 38 sightings of the bird were made in and around Gloucester until 2011. This is the first record since that date.
