More from Mull

Although we went to Mull specifically to help out with the Golden Eagles, it was nice to have some spare time up there to try and find (and then ring) some wader pulli. As is often the case, the car proved to be a very good mobile bird hide. In total, we manged to catch and ring 25 (+ 1 adult) Common Sandpipers, 6 Lapwings and 2 Oystercatchers (we did catch 3 more but they were too small).

(amazingly, the 25 we caught will probably be 20-25% of the total pulli ringed in the UK for 2013!)

We also managed to find and ring 7 Common Gull chicks!
