Handsome devil. Beach life in Sussex July 2015.

Paul mentioned most of his GBBG’s disperse in a westerly direction from Guernsey, towards NW France and Cornwall, so this birds easterly movement is interesting. It has made several visits to Slapton in Devon but most sightings during it’s adolescence were from Guernsey. The location at which it will surely breed itself. Clearly from the ringing date the bird is 4 years old and only just being fully adult in appearance.
