One in a million (well a hundred at least!)

It took a good ten minutes scruntinising the many noisy fornicating gulls in Brynmawr before I was able to find this single colour ringed lesser black back. I'll need to do a bit of forensic work on the image before I can confirm the number but first impressions suggest its one of Peter Rock's Bristol birds. Interestingly the herring gulls appear to be well into nesting with many sitting on eggs but the LBB gulls have only just started.
