More from the gull colony.....

The nice job!

Tonight I headed up to Killington Reservoir with Craig & Chris to ring any remaining Black Headed Gull chicks. A great evening had - 110 new chicks ringed. We also took time out to search for dead birds carrying rings, a few found - inc one or two controls of adult birds.
The not so nice, smelly, disgusting job - taking rings off dead birds!

With tonights new birds, this now brings the total to 562 new birds ringed at Killington this year.

Luckily Killington sits right next to Killington motorway services on the M6 - a handy place to washdown after a successful ringing trip!
