Ilfracombe

Today 2 Sandwich Terns and a Juv Common Gull were feeding along the tide race. Loafing on the rocks was a Juv Med Gull, I think? At least 5 Herring Gulls with a metal BTO leg ring. The recent adult Herring Gull with numbered leg ring was ringed in Hastings as a Chick in 2006  & not Sighted in 12 years til last Wk in Ilfracombe. Where do they go?
