Colony of Zeebrugge

Last week I did 2 attempts to see Belgium's 3rd King eider, in which I unfortunately did not succeed. Since I was in the harbour of Zeebrugge, where our largest colony of large gulls is located I tried to read some rings and take some pictures. All birds seen were locally-ringed.

LBBG blue MMA.B (E. Stienen).
