Mediterranean Gulls in Bracelet Bay

This flock, photographed just below Castellamare Cafe Bar, comprises mostly Mediterranean Gulls. In fact there are 58 in this group of 66 birds, which also includes 7 Black-headed Gulls and 1 Herring Gull. There were other Med's around and we saw a minimum of 65 today, which I think is probably the most I have ever recorded at this site?
A few were colour-ringed, but we only managed to read [White 3C78] and [White 39J8], both almost certainly of Belgian origin.
