Gull Identification and Behaviour

Steve takes you through the latest developments in field identification. Gulls are also fascinating, intelligent birds whose amazing migratory patterns have begun to unfold in recent years thanks to ringing, leg tagging and satellite tracking.


The first part looks at the identification of gulls. Especially the challenge of separating Caspian, Yellow-legged & Armenian Gull in the ‘Herring Gull complex’. Also, the Lesser Black-backed Gull complex (Baltic & Heuglin’s). The multiple age classes in the larger ‘white-headed’ gulls present a challenge to birders which you love or hate. Steve takes you through the latest developments in field identification. Gulls are also fascinating, intelligent birds whose amazing migratory patterns have begun to unfold in recent years thanks to ringing, leg tagging and satellite tracking.
