Seen by Chris at Aberystwyth on Friday this one had been ringed prior to fledging at a site in north east France near the mouth of the Somme in June 2014. It was  seen thereafter in north west France in Finistere in June  and November 2015 and in February 2016 before moving south to the Vendee region in April. (So, possibly one that has not always moved further south to Spain or Portugal for the winter.)
 The next sighting was by Chris, the gull like many of its kind, having flown north after the breeding season to Ceredigion.
