ITS WINDY

Jees, it's Windy tonight...I called at Dru on my way home, but it was too windy to do any birding so just hoyed some oats out and went home, there were 650 woodpigs on the rape field though...

I had lunch at Amble Harbour today, no meds or glaucs, did have two colour ringed birds through a BHG, with a metal ring and white ring with black letterin 'J72J' and a herring gull with a dark blue ring with white lettering 'J3LJ'. I checked the colour ringing website but no projects match - any ideas?

The only Gull ringing projects that i can find that start with the letter J are from Norway. They can be contacted at clifu@c2i.net.
Might be worth getting in touch.

Give Mark Grantham at the BTO a buzz, he's always really helpful with stuff like this... he's based at their HQ in Thetford...
