North West England Gull Project


The north-west gull project rings Herring Gulls and Lesser Black-backed Gull with a dark green ring with an inscriptiuon like N:xxx on the left leg and a metal ring on the right leg..

Please provide OS Grid reference or Latitude/Longitude



Much of the value of colour ringing comes from re-sighting reports by birdwatchers and members of the public. We welcome all reports of the birds that we have colour-ringed to allow us to build up a life history of the movements of each bird. Repeat sightings at the same location are just as valuable as those from new or distant sites.

Please use the form on the right to let us know when and where you have seen one of these birds. We will respond as soon as possible, usually within a week, with details of where and when the bird was ringed and a link to a page on this website showing a map of its movements.
