This blog follows the journey of my MSc undertaken during 2013-2014 as I investigated the lives, loves and loathings of Kelp Gulls, Larus dominicanus vetula, breeding in Plettenberg Bay.

When the two surviving oyc chicks were big enough to ring, Daniel joined me for the trip to Robberg to ring the little ones. Firstly I was quite disconcerted to not find them anywhere near the original nesting site, but we found them a fair distance away on some rocks, hiding in a crevice. We ringed the two chicks and put them back in their hidey hole.
Their handy hidey hole.
You can't see me!
