Ringing Recovery

Details of yesterdays dead Herring Gull are back already. It was ringed as a pullus at Moerdijk (Tetra Pak), Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands on 28th June 2007. It has subsequently been seen at Texel in the Netherlands on various dates in 2010 & 2012, then in Herefordshire on 7th February 2013 then back in the Netherlands at Den-Helder on 15th April 2014 before being found dead here yesterday. Just goes to show how quickly we can sometimes get the information back on ringed birds.
