PC Bobby the Police Station Gull 2018

PC Bobby lives in Greenock and is our first tagged gull

PC Bobby is an adult male Lesser Black-backed Gull.  He and his mate nest on the roof of Greenock Police Station.
This year he had two eggs but they were addled. However, we went back to his nest site
on the 5th of July and his mate had relain and was sitting on three eggs.  Unfortunately there was no
sign of the nest at the end of July.  He was our first bird to be captured at his nest site and tagged on the 18th of May 2017.  At the time of tagging he weighed 871.5g and has a wing length of 44.5cm.  He can be identified in the field by his colour ring, 10P:C, hence his name.

Map updated 18/01/18 We haven’t heard anything from PC Bobby in the last month.  We have a sneaky suspicion that he has headed into Morocco where we are having issues at the moment getting the info back via the mobile phone network.  However, the tag will still be collecting data.  We will update you when we hear from him.
