Return to the Isle of Puffins
2009 - Bird Ringing in 2010 - 2011
Taylor, A.M. (2011) Annual Report of the Lundy Field Society 2010 60:47-49
An interesting selection of recoveries and controls includes a Manx Shearwater which was ringed at the colony on Copeland, off Northern Ireland, in 2005 but has almost certainly settled as a Lundy breeder. Now that shearwaters are breeding successfully on Lundy, their numbers are building up so fast that some immigration must be involved; this individual, probably ringed when it was a young pre-breeder, gives the first hint of their origins.

While Lundy's Lesser Black-backed Gulls are regularly seen wintering in Portugal, the 15-year old Herring Gull found there is exceptional.
