A diary with a difference…..

Gull count weekend……

Well by the sound of things it was another hectic weekend on Flat Holm, and the week is continuing this theme… Preparations are under way for our first visit from Weston-Super-Mare.

The gull count took place last weekend, if you’d like to learn a little more about the gull ringers please click this link.  I don’t have the exact figures yet but i have heard that we were about 400 pairs of lesser black backs down on last year, which would mean about 3700 pairs on the island.  This is most likely a natural fluctuation as the gulls are limited primarily by space on the island.
