Ring-legged gulls

Have slowly managed to build up a small catalogue of half-decent shots of the Audouin's gulls in the general area. It was a pleasant surprise to find that some of the birds are carrying leg rings. Hopefully when I get home to a decent broadband width I will be able to submit the sightings to the relevant ringing authority- I really like coming across bird research under field conditions-exciting stuff! Visible migration has stalled somewhat, with the wind swinging around to a brisk nor-westerly.
