A successful trip was made to Inchcolm Island on the Forth to start a new project colour-ringing lesser blacked-backed gull chicks. The project hopes to increase knowledge of LBBGU movements; distribution of wintering grounds and breeding site fidelity of the Forth birds. The ongoing baseline effort is to colour-ring one hundred chicks each year on the island. The colour-rings are orange with 4 letter alpha-numeric codes, with three numerical digits followed by a colon and ‘F’ (for Forth) e.g. 001:F.
|100:F the hundredth chick ringed! (Calum Campbell)|

We look forward to the sightings! Please report any sightings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
