1W Caspian Gull, Pitsea tip 5/12/15

Very challenging Gull ringing session today in 100mph winds!!  We did manage one catch consisting of 172 New birds & 5 rattrap's.  Despite us being on site early doors we had to wait till mid morning before a dust cart with appropriate food waste on board for us to lure our quarry into the catch area.

With Aron on the controls & a few new faces, it went pretty well despite todays weather conditions. We did score with about 30 GBB's which is a lot better than previous recent attempts.

I picked up this 1w Caspian Gull whilst we were setting up.
