Colour-ringed Herring Gull

I was in Whitby on Friday evening, and whilst walking along the harbour, I spotted this colour-ringed Herring Gull.

As you can see from the picture, it was sitting on the bin with many other gulls. I checked on the colour-ringing website (see here) when I got back home and emailed the  ringer of the bird. I'll update with details as soon as I hear back.

As well as adult birds, there were lots of juveniles about, including this bird.
