New species ringed at Castle Semple.

It's not just Lesser Black-backed Gulls we get at the Loch

On Monday we went down to the entrance of Castle Semple to see if we could spot any of our tagged Lesser Black-backed Gulls.  We spotted Stuart and Roland along with one of the newly tagged birds.  We had some left over food to finish off so chucked it out for the Mallards when a wee Common Gull popped up in the middle of them. Hayley managed to swiftly pick it up and we put a BTO metal ring before releasing it to continue with its day. This is the first Common Gull that we have ringed at Castle Semple and they are alot smaller than their bigger cousins.  These guys move about as well so hopefully it will be spotted in the future.
