RE: Redgate Recycling, Gorton.


Thurs 22nd Feb.

Reply from Czech ringing group today regarding Caspian Gull 919:U
It is down as a Caspian Gull on their data but I think there does look to be possible Herring influence.

Ringer : Jan Havlicek
Ringed as a chick 06.05.23
Location : eské Budjovice, Jihoeský kraj, Czech Republic

The bird has been reported 5 times since fledging, all in the same region it was hatched (and all within a couple of months of ringing) so this is the 1st sighting since July last year.

Went back late afternoon to see if anything was about and struck good.

- 1st w Caspian Gull 919:U
Looks to be Czech ringed. Looks ok to me but we will see, it will be submitted as usual.

Few dark eyed Herring Gulls around too, giving an unusual look but they are just Herring Gulls Im sure.

Day off work due to half term so a couple of visits with Lucas.

Lunchtime.
- 1st w Caspian Gull
Picked up in flight only around the yard and over Copping Street (the side street at the Hyde Rd end of Redgate Lane). I lost it in my bins as it flew over the corner building.
Damn! I had to let it go as I had a few errands to do.

- 2 Common Gulls

Also what I forgot to mention, on the last few visits (Fri, Sat, Sun) different vehicles have been parked over the viewing point. One of the trucks was parked there on Saturday afternoon and as a result the image of the Caspian Gull appears bluey green tinted as I had to focus the camera through its 2 door windows to get a shot.

New Years Day (01.01.24)

- 1st W Caspian Gull X3EU (now 2CY)
Showed well this afternoon in main yard, certainly looks a lot better than it did the other day in poor light. Despite it being what some people call German Muck from a mixed colony, I actually think its a good looking individual.

Also today..
- same 2 Yellow legged Herring Gulls
- Herring Gull N:26E again
- c25 ad Great Black-backed Gulls
- some nice looking 1w & 2w GBb

Sun 31st Dec (New Years Eve)
3 visits today with my lad but it wasnt plain sailing.

Morning visit.
The usual Sunday African gospel church was in full swing so finding a decent parking spot was a bit tricky. Many people arriving and walking about, as a result the Gulls were mainly airborne but did land a few times.
- c30 ad Great Black-backed Gulls
- 1 ad Lesser Black-backed Gull
- 2 Common Gulls
- Herring Gull with yellow legs

Lunchtime visit before Debdale.
Again very busy, the car park and the road infront of the 384 building was busy with people, so yet again many of the Gulls were airborne, a small number were in the yard, some flew off to BCA roof and a good proportion headed towards Openshaw.
- Herring Gull with yellow legs still

Afternoon visit after Debdale & Salford Quays.
Not that many Gulls present, mainly all in yard.
- now 2 Herring Gulls with yellow legs, the regular one and a clean headed one, its legs not as yellow
- c12 Long-tailed Tit flock
- 2 Grey Wagtails
- 3 x 1w Pied Wagtails (still got yellowy faces)

- 1st w Caspian Gull X3EU was reported present 12.20pm, I was present at that time so I missed that one, I didnt see any other birders present either to be fair, I wouldnt have minded a better look at that one.

First chance Ive had since Boxing Day to see whats around, and I have to say it was a productive visit even though it was late afternoon in fading light.

- 1st winter Caspian Gull X3EU
Picked it up in flight and as luck would have it, it landed on the 384 roof. Looks to be German ringed and probably from a mixed colony with HG, YLG, & LBb.
- c30+ adult Great Black-backed Gulls
Including Norwegian ringed adult JX313

Boxing Day.

- Herring Gull Y:561 in yard

Just as I was leaving I was sure I had a 1w Caspian Gull in flight around the yard. It reappeared in flight then disappeared just as quickly. I couldnt stay though as we were taking Lucas to a
Panto.

If Im incorrect with the ID then I will amend the post no problem. Probably not the best of examples I will say that, but seemed to show some decent features that would lend themselves to this species.

- adult Caspian Gull possibly same bird as this morning.

Tues 21st Nov

- 1st w Herring or Lesser Black-backed Gull (prob LBb) sat at the side of the road mid-afternoon. I put my work gloves on and put it on the grass inside the 384 grounds. I was thinking maybe clipped by a car and was just dazed. It didnt half pack a nip whilst handling it, very strong bill grip around my fingers.

I went back to work then called back later, it was still there. Phoned RSPCA - no answer. Phoned at least 4 different numbers for animal shelters - no answer. I sent one a text asking if they come out to wild birds. I got a text back lunchtime next day (Weds) saying phone the main RSPCA control centre. I explained I had already done that but received another text late afternoon saying they were very busy.

It couldve been an injury not readily seen, or it couldve been diseased so I had to leave it. The Gull inevitably perished overnight, before I even got a response from the RSPCA , its corpse is still there.

- Thought I had a 1st w Caspian Gull stood on BCA roof but as I reached for my camera the damn thing sat down obscured by the metal structures in their yard so it didnt make for the best photo opportunities.
It looked better whilst it was standing than sat down, but knowing my luck it was probably just a Herring Gull.
