Instow Med' Gulls

A few Med' Gull visible even at low tide around the cricket club, roosting on the rocks. One had a red, coded colour ring. Unreadable with binoculars but 'red on a Med' = eastern European project so far as CR-birding website is concerned. Heading back at high tide to hopefully get the code with scope. N Devon birders I highly recommend ring reading these birds as they're almost always overseas recoveries and it's massively valuable science and rewarding to spot the same gulls year on year.
