Report your sightings of marked Silver Gulls here. This will help with our research project to monitor the year-round movements of these birds.  Even partial information is welcome (e.g. you saw a black band but missed the letter code).

Basic reports:

Date, Location (be specific), Band colour, Band code, and Observer name

Additional details:

  • Time & GPS position
  • Band & code colour (e.g. white on black)
  • 3-letter code (e.g. A01)
  • Habitat (e.g. platform, vessel, pier, rubbish tip, beach, city)
  • Behaviour (e.g. following boat, loafing on beach, flying by, feeding)
  • Other comments and stories
  • Photos are always welcome and can help to identify the letter code!
