European Herring Gull Green KABZ past and present – 20150503

When I first came across European Herring Gull Green KABZ in October 2010 in my home town of Leiden, he was less than half a year old.

I subsequently saw him in January 2012 at the beach of Wijk aan Zee but have not come across him since.

Until today, 3 May 2015, when we observed him in the gull colony at Texel, the Netherlands (Kelderhuispolder where it was ringed in 2010), paired up with female Green FANT.

It is nice to see him all grown up, settled in and doing well.
