Sliedrecht, 9-9-2011. YLG with yellow ring

Post by Albert de Jong » Mon Sep 12, 2011 8:16 pm

Hi,

Some days ago I found a c-ringed michahellis at my local patch in Sliedrecht, NL. It was a 1cy with a yellow c-ring on the left tarsus.The inscription was: H2J4.
I couldn't find the right project so far. Can anybody help?

I forgot my CF-card, so I had to phone-scope it....

Yellow ring with 4-digit code starting with the letter H sounds like a bird from Helgoland, Germany, perhaps.
In that case though, it is more likely a Herring Gull (or hybrid)...

Indeed, Peter. I just received the ringdata from Sönke Martens. He ringed it as a michahellis, but I doubt whether it's a pure micha.
The series H(nr)J(nr) is used in the colony of Frankfurt a. M.
