September 2020

 September 28th

I had decided to keep this website mainly for Black-Headed Gulls but again due to COVID restrictions I am not going out as much.  But unfortunately, coloured ringed Black-headed Gulls are not being sighted by me locally at the moment.  I was at Bushy Park, which I went to to investigate new a Swan Family (which turned out to be the Family from Terenure College a mile away) and spotted a Polish Black-Headed Gull I haven't seen for years.

Black-headed Gull White [TUUA] was ringed in Poland, as an adult in 2016 and although I haven't seen it since 2017, it was recorded in Dublin in 2018 and 2019.  It wasn't interested in the bread being fed to the ducks, so ring photographed underwater.
