Gullfest Ringing Recovery in Leicester

 Arctic Niceness!

…to quote a certain Tormod Amundsen. Delighted to get this mail from Steve Lister who has seen of the argentatus Herring Gulls ringed during Gullfest 2012 on Vardo. Very cool. It’s wintering in Leicester somewhere…

One of that batch of argentatus Herring Gulls being ringed at the Arctic Gullfest in April 2012. And you can mix gull wing tip studies with playing in the snow.

 Hi Martin

Firstly, Happy Christmas to you and your family.

 I had the morning at Shawell, one of my gull spots, and read ring Black JX203 on an adult Herring Gull. It turns out that you are listed as one of the ringers, at Vardo on 14.04.2012. 

Best wishes

Steve Lister

Gullfest ringing station at Vardo, Varanger, April 2012. This was also the gullfest basecamp. Steve's sighting of  black was ringed here.
