Some bad news to report on the Ballycastle Ring Billed Gull. We have found out that it is an escape and was released by the Chip Shop Owner Bert Trumpton. Bert said that Sales last year went through the roof when he released his pet Laughing Gull called Lionel and he thinks by releasing Reginald he will have another bumper summer season. So get that Laughing Gull off your lists!
Many thanks to Geoff Campbell for this great photo of Reginald. Check more shots of Reg at gcampbellphoto.co.uk
