Important Request

Bonaparte's Gull in Cardiff 2014
I am compiling notes on the Bonaparte's Gull[s] in Cardiff during the period Jan/Mar 2014 for BBRC. I am especially looking for photos in Cardiff Bay. I have some shots from GNS on the foreshore and I have one from LM when he saw it at Cosmeston. I know that several observers saw two adults together in Cardiff Bay on 30th March - did anyone get a photo? Can anyone send me notes with drawings attached of the two, pointing out any differences between them (head pattern esp.). Please email me with any info. Many thanks. DRWG

Special thanks to:
Phil Bristow, Peter Howlett, Graham Smith, Lol Middleton, Andrew Burns & Gary Light.
