Slender-billed Gulls mistnetted in the Po Delta, Italy

Last night 32 Slender-billed Gulls had been mistnetted for the first time in Italy and maybe in Europe by the Stelar Ringing Group, a national network of ringers and ring-readers devoted to Gulls and Terns. Among the Slender-billed Gulls found in the nets, one was carrying out a French ring, while during the same session a Swiss Black-headed Gull and a Sandwich Tern with a London ring were also caught. The Comacchio Salina Ringing Station is among the most important European bird observatories receiving regularly visits by ornithologists and birdwatchers from abroad, among which we hosted recently Bill Oddie, Bob Scott, Carol Debney, Klaus Malling Olsen and Hans Larsson.
