July - 2nd Post

29th July

On Sandymount strand today, the Black-headed Gull E5VA showed up.  I also read 9 Oystercatcher rings, 5 Mediterranean Gulls (Including HK36 from Hungary) and the best of the day was one of the new Herring Gulls.  All very far away for good photos, but here are a few.

The Colour ringed Juvenile Gulls have so far not moved very far from their nest sites.  I have recorded a couple on the Liffey, but only a few 100m from where they were ringed.  This is to be expected.  I went out to Ireland's Eye to see how they are getting on and to get some photographs to publicise the project.  A friend Tonya  went with me so some of the photos are hers.
