    We paid you a visit on Sunday June 15 to deliver 7 herring gull chicks which we had found in our garden the previous Monday and had taken care of as we could not find their parents or nests. We were told during our visit that it would be possible to ask for information such as which ring numbers they were assigned and how they are doing so far. I know you are probably very busy, but if it is feasible could we please get a quick update?
    Thanks in advance.
    All the best,

    Armel Nicolas and Julia Neusiedler
