Suzanne’s discovery of a Black-headed Gull, on the 13th October 2022, at Kinnegar Coastline on Belfast Lough, was actually pleasing to obtain. The bird worried – 2AJF , comes from Adam McClure’s previous Northern Ireland Job, which I currently react to.
2AJF , was ringed as a chick, on the 19th June 2014, at the WWT Castle Espie Marsh Centre in Region Down. The gull went unrecorded till 2018, when I made the very first of 7 re-sightings for this bird:-

Given That 2019, this gull has actually gone unrecorded previously. My discoveries of – 2AJF , at the RSPB Get, saw the bird being videotaped on nesting system 2. The system has actually been kept track of considering that 2019, there has actually been no indicator of –
2AJF Numerous Black-headed Gulls nest around the sides of the shallows at the get, so it might be most likely that is where the gull is nesting at currently. Suzanne’s discovery, takes the period to 8 years, 3 months and also 24 days. Black-headed Gull –

On the 18th October 2022, Suzanne dropped in with a colour-ringed Redshank, which she has actually videotaped two times formerly at the exact same website on Tyrella Coastline in Region Down. Suzanne’s very first experience, was made on the 9th November 2021, with the 2nd having actually been made on the first February 2022.
However, neither the BTO or the International Wader Study Hall, might determine the proprietor of the colour-ringing job as apparently, it had actually not been signed up. A handful of birdwatchers right here in North Ireland, understands that the perpetrator is, and also it’s depressing to be stating this, the private worried is in fact moneyed to accomplish numerous jobs. He is calling lots of birds yet has actually not been sending the buzzing information to the BTO, and also they consequently, can not generate healings.
I have actually additionally videotaped among these Redshanks, 2 colour-ringed Oystercatcher and also a colour-ringed Herring Gull, coming from the exact same individual. Having actually sent Suzanne’s redshank discoveries, plus my very own birds by their colour-marks just, the BTO has actually just recently eliminated these birds from my Satanic force account, consequently, we will certainly have no opportunity in getting the buzzing information. I was informed to re-submit the discoveries whenever I can get a metal-number for every bird specifically
By doing this, the BTO are allowing the ringer worried, ‘escape his tasks’, which will just contribute to the stress when ‘ring visitors’ invest much time in the area videotaping colour-ringed birds coming from the claimed individual, and also not getting any type of end result. I educated the BTO and also the IWSG that the ringer is, their e-mails to that person have actually not been addressed.
