Mediterranean Gull

I saw a red ringed gull on 1st August in Instow number PNR8. I have seen this individual here before and the ringing details show that it was ringed in East Poland in 2007 when it was nesting. So it must have been at least in its 3rd year then. It returns to Poland to breed annually and then back to the UK and has been sighted many times in North Devon and on the Camel estuary. I don't know the longevity of Med Gulls but this one must be an old timer!
