Herring gulls and Oystercatcher

Today, a short stop in Nieuwpoort resulted in 4 ring-readings: 3 Belgian Herring gulls (1 new) and 1 Dutch Oystercatcher (the bird I also saw there in October).
Herring gull blue Y.UAD (E Stienen), my second observation of this bird, which was ringed in August last year as 1st year bird.
Herring gull blue M.TAB (E Stienen, this picture is from 2010 - today it was too far off to be photographed), my 6th observation of this gull, it was ringed as a chick in 2009.
Oystercatcher LAM;LBRW(T);RAN;RBWN(C) (Netherlands), also my second observation. This bird was ringed in 2010.
