Taken by me on Tuesday 7th 2012 on the Axe Estuary!
This Great Black-backed Gull has spent most its time in Guernsey, not being seen away from here until 7th June 2012 when it spent a couple of days at Calvados, France. It was back on Guernsey on 25th July 2012, but this was the last sighting of it before it 'graced' us on the Axe this week.
I am still waiting for details on another colour-ringed Great Black-backed Gull also seen on Tuesday, and have seen another colour-ringed Black-headed Gull this morning.
Also on Black Hole Marsh this morning; 18 Black-tailed Godwit, 15 Dunlin, 10 Common Sands, one Greenshank and one Snipe. Still waiting for that mega....
