Two ‘Same Age’ Herring Gulls Compared by Robbie P.

On July 1, 2015 Robbie photographed several ‘Appledore Gulls’ including 82C and 55C.  Both gulls were banded at their nests on different sides of Appledore Island where they had hatched .  Both were almost ready to fly at the time of banding. Robbie’s photos, taken about a year after hatching, allow comparison between gulls within days of the same age.

      56C is a year old juvenile Herring Gull banded on Appledore Island in July 2014. 56C was a chick almost ready to fly at the time of banding. Thanks for your report. I hope 56C left you a sandwich or at least some chips. Bill Clark – Appledore Gull volunteer.
