Young's Park Ponds, Goodrington, Paignton

I've just received the history for a French colour-ringed, Great Black-backed Gull seen at the ponds on 12/03/21. Green Ring Y90.

The bird was ringed as a chick on the Chausey Islands, off the North French coast on 21/06/20. It was regularly reported in that area up to the end of October 2020, when it moved along the coast to Erquy where it was seen a number of times over the winter. It was last reported there on 16/02/21.
