Stephen is an adult male Lesser Black-backed Gull. He was hand caught at Castle Semple Loch on the 9th of June.
As he was hand caught we don’t have any evidence of nesting behaviour but it is believed, by the movement data below, that he may have a nest on Little Cumbrae. At the time of tagging he weighed 840g and has a wing length of 40.4cm. He is a very steady gull and was our easiest gull to tag and hardly tried to bite when getting his tag fitted. Stephen can be identified in the field by his colour ring 11R:C.
