RE: Redgate Recycling, Gorton.


Thursday 28th Dec

- 1 Yellow-legged Gull (same one again briefly this afternoon)
- 7 adult Great Black-backed Gulls

...and an unusual looking Gull which will probably come to nothing but I'll let Ian give me the bad news on that one wink

Late post for Weds 20th Dec.

Late afternoon...not surprised to see the same Yellow-legged Gull again this afternoon at Redgate.
It's probably been in the area all day seeing as though it was on Chapman Street this morning just down the road.

Also...
- 4 adult Great Black-backed Gulls
- at least 5 Argentatus Herring Gulls

- 1 Yellow-legged Gull (same bird again as yesterday)

All the Gulls were on the 384 building as I arrived 10 minutes ago but they've literally all just disappeared together off to roost.

- 1 adult Yellow-legged Gull currently on the 384 building.
Bill pattern and the dull leg colour look good for the individual that's been here on and off last couple of weeks.

Also...
- 4 adult Great Black-backed Gulls
- 6 Argentatus Herring Gulls

Just for the record if anybody wanted to know, I've just had an email back from Lee Barber.

-Confirmed as an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull.
-First ringed in May 2017 at Barrow-in-Furness docks.
-97 miles away / 192 days ago
-This bird is of particular interest as it was fitted with a GPS tag that was attached to a harness designed to drop off eventually, this sighting could signify a 'drop off' event.
Cheers

Thursday 7th Dec (afternoon).

- 6 adult Great Black-backed Gull
- 3 Argentatus Herring Gull

- Also...1 adult Yellow-legged Gull.
It's the same bird as the other day and after analysing the images I'm almost 100% certain it's the same bird that was here 22nd Feb and then 28th Feb. Images are on Bits Bobs Odds Sods of this Gull for those 2 earlier dates. I'm sure it's the same Gull.

An absolute mass of Gulls flying around when I pulled up for a break, making it impossible to pick anything out.
When some of them did finally land on the 384 roof, the immediate stand out birds were...
2 Argentatus Herring Gull
1 Black-headed Gull with full dark brown head and very bright red bill and legs
