This afternoon, during a short break, I checked a few places in Gent to see if there were any c-ringed LBBG's present. To my surprise, I soon found a bird with a large red ring, which turned out to be one of Philippe Dubois' birds. This is my first French bird in Gent! After this, I also saw a metal-ringed bird, which I unfortunately could not read entirely. However, I could read "London" (and 4 letters too), so this was a British bird, also a first for me in Gent... Also 2 birds from Roland-Jan Buijs his project, including 1 new one.
LBBG red 254N (P. Dubois), my first French bird in Gent. These rings are not the easiest to read...
LBBG blue 1N (RJ Buijs), my first observation this year (I saw this bird 3 times last spring).
LBBG red VH (RJ Buijs), a new bird to me.
See you at Rutland Birdfair
