Leo, as an 'old hand' in part of that area it was great to read your report, except for the sting in the tail, when your cases were stolen. I was robbed of my valuables by a parasite in Barcelona...

The birds in your photos (good quality to me, by the way!) look like juvenile black-crowned night herons. The standing bird especially looks more grey than the ones which I have seen in Spain,...

I have quickly checked Klaus Malling Olsen's Helm Gulls ID Guide and that doesn't seem to mention pink legs in adult YL Gulls, except in a few cases in the Azores, just to throw that in!

Kittiwakes

I notice on eBird that a much larger flock of kittiwakes was seen from the west of Madeira on 16th March, soon after I left La Palma and presumably related to my sightings.

Someone called Jez Blackburn had the BTO responsibility for colour-ringing about 10-15 years ago. Is it still him?

Any comments from the BTO to this question?

I agree with you, John. The BTO co-ordinate ringing and, presumably, have the IT capacity to deal with reports. Local ringers sometimes run out of time and energy, which includes notifying ringing...

Perhaps I should have styled the thread something enjoyable eating and birding, as birds don't have to be unusual to be enjoyable to watch.

Stephen,

Interesting notes on what you saw. Did you visit the sites that you mention on foot from the hotel or by using public transport?
