Ringed B.H Gull

Report. R. Lane

A brief visit to Par Pool (8thSep.2011) showed the two gulls of 4thSep (Med.Gull & Darvic ringed B.H.Gull) to be present still. At least there was an imm.Med Gull still, although it did look smarter than on 4thSep.! It's typical 'bully-boy' behaviour brought it to my notice today, 'seeing-off any B.H.Gull within reach !
             Got a bit closer to the white darvic ringed B.H.Gull, which incidentally is an adult and ringed on the right leg as suspected. The number appears to be: Z V 2 7 (not 5 digit as thought), and has NOT been reported yet (by me), if anyone cares to, please do so. (Recorder: R.LANE).
Sorry it was up late.
When can we expect the first Divers Roger?

  1. Divers rare before 1stOct., but may get a Grebe or two on Par Pool before then (we should be so lucky!). Or indeed in St.Aust.Bay, when the wind eases off !
    Should be several Divers in the Bay (GNDivers) particularly at Porthpean (sheltered from westerly winds) by mid-Oct. and 'plenty' by November !
