Return of the Meds

The Mediterranean Gulls have come back to the Holbeck Car Park area again for the winter. At the last count there has been 4 adult winter and 2 second winter birds present and the easiest way to have a close encounter is to take plenty of bread with you.

One of the second winter birds is holding a ring tag No. E913736 which was ringed in Belgium on the 27th May 2008 and also one of the adult birds is ringed too and apparently was tagged in Serbia. All the above information was found out by fellow wildlife photographer Dave Mansell who has also got some great images of the Meds on his website so please take a look -
