Colour ring reported. This gull is something of a Whitby regular. Ringed (as an adult) on 16th March 2007 at Seaman Carr landfill (TA038820) it has been seen in Whitby on 14/v/2008, 20/xii/2008, 18/viii/2010, 8/x/2011, 16/i/2012 and 25/iv/2012. On 10/xii/2010 however it was at Richmond Bank, Warrington, Cheshire.
Trying to read the leg ring was complicated by the tendency of tourists to throw chips to them causing all the gulls to fly off.
Update August 2014 - I saw this bird again (or another one with an identical leg ring) at the same location on 18th and 19th of August 2014. Pictures from 2014 at http://www.ispotnature.org/node/440918
Update August 2015 - This bird was again at the same location between 21st and 26th August 2015. See http://www.ispotnature.org/node/724250
