Lesser Black-backed Gull ( Larus fuscus)

This ringed Lesser Black-backed Gull we saw on October 31 2010 at the beach of Chipiona. Investigations of a friendly Spanish ornithologists showed, that Y.ARS was ringed on July 5 2010 on the Netherland island of Forteiland Ijmuiden where he was seen at another seven times, last on August 11 2010. And now we could inform about its sighting from Chipiona beach at the Atlantic Ocean. What a wonderful experience to witness the bird migration from that close!
