Finally a 1Y Lesser Black-backed gull

Christian ringing the Lesser Black-backed gull
This evenings tiny catching effort gave us the opportunity to once again touch and ring a Lesser Black-backed gull. It was caught  at one of our regular places south of Bergen at Tveitevatnet. We equipped it with JC1K, measured it and wished it good luck for it's journey to the Mediterranean. In addition we also ringed a 1Y Mew Gull making the total number for this species 40. We also read five of the Mew Gulls from the weekend knowing that they still were fattening up for their migration southwards.
