Laura the Satellite tagged Baltic Gull update - Bird records by Per Hansson

Laura the satellite tagged Baltic Gull is still in the same area of Saudi Arabia, a bay to the south of Jizan on the Red Sea coast. She has been here all winter and Per Hansson has just sent me details of the last sightings of her which indicate she is still in the same area. It will be interesting to see when she starts moving back to her breeding grounds in Sweden as she should be moving in the next few weeks I would have thought. Although Laura has been close to the Yemen boarder for most of her stay she has not crossed the boarder from Saudi Arabia into that country the entire time she has been wintering in the area.
