Efforts were in part concentrated on the RSPB Reserve where the gull roost continues to provide plenty of interest with several Caspian Gulls seen and including this colour-ringed bird. It was originally ringed at Lviv in Ukraine as a nestling in 2015 and was first seen at Dungeness later in that year. Nice evidence of a returning wintering individual.
