LBBG_JUVENILE - Juvenile lesser black-backed gulls (Larus fuscus, Laridae) hatched in Zeebrugge (Belgium) is a bird tracking dataset published by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal tracking data collected by the LifeWatch GPS tracking network for large birds (http://lifewatch.be/en/gps-tracking-network-large-birds) for the project/study LBBG_JUVENILE, using trackers developed by Ornitela (https://www.ornitela.com). The study has been operational since 2020. In total 50 individuals of Lesser black-backed gull (Larus fuscus) have been tagged shortly after fledging in the colony of Zeebrugge, mainly to study their habitat use and migration behaviour. Data are automatically synced with Movebank and from there periodically archived on Zenodo (see https://github.com/inbo/bird-tracking).

Data in this package are exported from Movebank study LBBG_JUVENILE - Juvenile lesser black-backed gulls (Larus fuscus, Laridae) hatched in Zeebrugge (Belgium) (Movebank Study ID 1259686571), which can be viewed at https://www.movebank.org/cms/webapp?gwt_fragment=page=studies,path=study1259686571. Fields in the data follow the Movebank Attribute Dictionary (http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/MVB) and are described in datapackage.json.
