Recently born Audouin gulls were banded with ID rings last Friday, as 30 volunteers took part for the second year running in a special day involved in tagging one of the world’s rarest species of gull.

The session took place on Torrevieja’s salt flats with around 200 birds getting the tags in an hour allowing them to be monitored via binoculars, with blood samples also being taken to study the gulls, including any diseases they might get, as well as their dietary habits.

The Torrevieja site has seen some 1,900 nesting pairs of the Audouin over the last 12 months.
