Oldest Dutch herring gull in Friesland province


This video is about adult and juvenile herring gulls (and a few black-headed gulls in winter plumage)

Translated from the Waddenvereniging in the Netherlands today:

The oldest ringed herring gull in our country turned up last weekend in Leeuwarden‘s [capital of Friesland province] new district Blitsaerd in front of the lens of nature photographer Ruurd Jelle van der Ley …

Meanwhile, the seagull has reached the respectable age of 28 years and eight months. On July 3, 1986, on Ameland island, this bird got two colored rings. An orange one with letter A and a green one with letter Y. Birdwatchers know him as OAGJ or Green J. he lost the orange ring about six years ago. Thanks to the remaining green ring and the fact that he walks with a slight limp he is still recognizable.
