GBB Gull ringing

What do you do with 17 loaves of bread, a turkey carcass, two mince rounds, a pizza and a whole salmon that Raymond has had since November? Thats right - an expedition to catch gulls in the harbours of the North-east!
Despite a distinct reduction in the number of herring gulls in the harbours due to the lack of fishing boats coming in over the festive period, we tried a few tried and tested catching methods as well as a bit of improvisation. The result was 11 GBB gulls and 3 herring gulls.

As a side effect though, Euan managed to make us think we should carry a first aid kit with us when out ringing and Raymond had to sit in a car on his own as he was designated stinky salmon toucher.
