Lots of Meds but darvic rings not read

Heysham Observatory
Outfalls area
FIVE juvenile Mediterranean Gulls on Heysham Two outfall this lunchtime/early afternoon including two unread darvic rings (one red and one white). Anyone able to help read these tomorrow, please? (I wont have time). One of the juvs was metal-only ringed which will probably be impossible to decipher (unless digipic taken?). Also one adult Med Gull and the adult Little Gull

North harbour wall
The 'usual' two 2nd W and Czech-ringed adult Med Gull along the north harbour wall = 9 Meds in total in the area today

By far the main event of the day was a Great White Egret which joined 26 Little Egret and 3 Spoonbill on the Allen/EM Pools. It was discovered early morning and remained all day. A single Curlew Sandpiper was in the same area late afternoon. The adult Yellow-legged Gull was on the Lune Estuary by Glasson. The Belgian-ringed adult Med Gull was again by Morecambe Broadway along with two Little Egret
