http://clydemuirshiel.co.uk/welsh-wanderings-for-jonathan/ 'Jonathan' a Lesser Black-backed Gull tagged & tracked this summer in the Clyde estuary, is currently being tracked by satellite between the Llangorse Lake roost and Brechfa Pool & feeding sites in Wye valley. Its local track data is shown on the attached blog-page of the Clyde Muirshiel Country Park. Probably a typical movement locally, but nice to know where at least one comes from. Should you see it by day in fields or at Brechfa its darvic leg-ring is 16SC.
