18th and 20th December 2009 - Roost and another Gull

Wes did another roost session at Capel reserve on 18th December and caught 35 birds including another Redwing, two Song Thrush, three Blackbird (below) and eight Long-tailed Tit.
The decrease in temperatures over the last few days has led to the lakes at Warnham LNR and Soutwater CP freezing over which has made it a lot easier to see the legs of the gulls. So today I managed to find another ringed Black-headed Gull this time at Warnham LNR with a blue colour ring on its right leg (code R03V) and a metal ring on the left leg above the knee (unreadable). Initial searches seem to say that this bird was ringed in Spain.
