St.George's Island Looe.

Great black backed Gull

I had a full day on Looe island on Monday with members of the Cornwall Wildlife Trust and the CBWPS who were ringing Great black backed Gulls as part of an ongoing project on the island.

We ended up ringing 68 Great black backed Gulls - 61 with colour rings. 30 Herring Gulls and 3 Oystercatchers.

So if you come across a GBB with a colour ring then please try to read the number and then get in touch with either CWT or CBWPS.

Here are some other images from the day including the 3 oystercatcher chicks ringed from the same clutch.
