Colour ringed Mediterranean Gull results

I promised to post here the history data when received of our sightings of the two colour-ringed Mediterranean Gull seen at Radipole Lake, on our Sunday (19th) Monthly walk. What is interesting is both birds originated from two different populations and both have turned up within a metre of each other.  It makes you wonder where all the many associating un-ringed Med gull had come from.

The history of these birds and their travels is very interesting.
Bird 1 is very well travelled and has been recorded once before at Radipole in 2013.
Bird 2 hasn't been seen quite so much but is only just starting out as it's a much younger bird.
