Ring Viewing At Antrim Marina: Unnoticed …


As anticipated, I missed out on an additional regular browse through to Antrim Marina the other day – second January 2022. With the clutch of my cars and truck having actually crammed in on Xmas Day, I have actually been based because. I strolled to my auto mechanic the other day, yet they were still shut. My cars and truck is still resting beyond the facilities, so I began the engine for the very first time because Xmas Day, to allow it compete around 15 mins so regarding cover up the battery. Ballymena Tyres, are primarily a tire business which take on some cars and truck repair services, yet I’m unsure whether they will certainly tackle the work of changing a clutch. It might well be feasible, that I might be off the roadway for an additional week or two which is not optimal.

Lurgan Park Lake – 15th & & 16th December 2022 On the 15th December 2022, Suzanne saw the lake at Lurgan Park in Region Armagh, where she found that the majority of the lake was iced up over. With the gulls required to depend on the ice, the legs were quickly checked out which caused an exceptional variety of rings being tape-recorded. Unidentified to Suzanne at the time, whilst checking out a variety of images taken that day, she discovered a Typical Gull with a White Darvic, which motivated a 2nd browse through on the complying with day, where the gull was ultimately situated and also the ring read.

The 2nd Black-headed Gull, was a Danish-rung adolescent, showing off the brand-new design steel ring. The alpha-numeric code reviews upwards in 2 columns of 3 personalities and also is duplicated two times on the ring which supplies a better chance for the complete code to be reviewed.

Its a pity that these 2 gulls escaped, as this would certainly have been a truly excellent haul in general. When lakes end up being iced up over, this supplies a fantastic chance for ring analysis, one which Suzanne made the most of.

Once again, my many thanks to Suzanne for her discoveries and also images.
