A Common Gull Called "Stumps"

This Common Gull which I have named 'Stumps' is creating a bit of interest amongst some of my Blog followers. I was able to obtain a partial number on it's ring and it appears to match a series used on Copeland Island in 2010, in which case the gull was probably ringed as chick. I first spotted the bird in July, but it flew off before I could get any photos. I re-sighted this gull on Saturday (13th) at the same location in Millisle and was able to get these photos. The gull appears to be getting along quite well, despite losing both feet.
