Med.Gull Green ALHA

Seen in Aber harbour 5th and 7th from my balcony. Details just received: ringed before fledging June 2013 by the Elbe,west of Hamberg,Germany and reported there during some subsequent breeding seasons since 2014. Most winters seen in Spain or Portugal. Other post-breeding sightings: Aberystwyth July 2016 (Chris Bird), Newport, Pembs Oct 2020 (Sam Baxter), Cei Bach and then Llanon Sept 2021 (Arfon Williams) and Aber. this month. Largely restricted indoors with my very new replacement knee,I am resigned to just viewing the harbour and wishing that sea-watching could match that at Mwnt down the coast.
