Moroccan dream...

Urban ringing in Bergen are at the time of writing at a gull expedition to Morocco. We have used the first two days reading gulls in Anza, Agadir and got around 50 different readings. This morning our dream comes true when JC5K ringed by us in Bergen 11th of September was eating fish waste in Anza. Our mission in Anza was complete and we headed southwards to Sidi Ifni. This small town between Tan-Tan and Agadir does not have a fish factory but still around 1500 Lesser blacked-backed gulls was seen. One of the birds was ringed by Alf Tore Mjøs i Stavanger. We have many other Lesser Black-backed readings and will send you information as soon as we get home to Norway!

JC5K in Anza, Agadir


  1. Congratulations on your Moroccan dream. There is something truly special (and rather humbling)about seeing your own gulls so very far from home...and then you can look forward to the Dream Part 2 - finding the same gulls back on their breeding grounds again! Good luck!

  2. Hi Christian,
    could you please contact the BTO ringing office we are trying to send you some your recoveries but the emails are bouncing back.
    With best wishes
