A slightly fuller history of 2K44 is as follows:

This bird was ringed in the nest at Cleveland Farm, Cotswold Waterpark, Wiltshire on the 12th June 2007 and has been recorded back at that site in May 2008, May 2009 and between March and May 2010. However it has also been sighted on a number of dates over the years at Upton Warren - 27th July 2009, 5th August 2009, 16th and 23rd July 2011, 2nd August 2014, 27th August 2016 and 17th August 2017. I will contact the ringing coordinator for an up-to-date history but as far as I am aware it has not been seen away from CWP or Upton Warren. I believe this is the oldest Black-headed Gull ever recorded on the reserve.
