A quick visit to Riverside Newport and the colour ringed redshank is still showing well feeding along the shore line of a rising tide. An elderly gentleman arrived on his bike with a shopping bag full of scraps for the birds, quickly attracting a mass of noisy gulls. In amongst the gathering was this colour ringed black headed gull although sorting out the number was a bit of a challenge due to a coating of luscious River Usk mud. On closer examination the letters ARK can be seen on the metal suggesting its of Danish origin. The white colour ring is inscribed with the alpha numeric sequence 5EY. I'll report and wait.
