Tuesday 07 August: Update on the ringed Audouin's Gulls seen at Guadalhorce reserve, Malaga....all four birds were ringed as chicks. One was ringed at Laguna de Mata, Torrevieja, Alicante in 2007 (5yrs old), one at Delta de Ebro, Tarragona, Catalonia in 2001 (11yrs old) and two at Punta de Banya, Delta de Ebro, Tarragona, Catalonia in 2006 (6yrs old) and 2010 (2yrs old). Not hugely exciting histories but still interesting and it fits in with the known southwards dispersal of juveniles from the Ebro Delta colony which holds almost 70% of the global population (Oro, D. & Martinez, A. 1994. Migration and dispersal of Audouin's Gull Larus audouinii from the Ebro Delta colony. Ostrich 65:225-230).
