Description

MEDGULL_ANTWERPEN - Mediterranean gulls (Ichthyaetus melanocephalus, Laridae) breeding near Antwerp (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 MEDGULL_ANTWERPEN, using trackers developed by Ornitela (https://www.ornitela.com). The study has been operational since 2021. In total 14 individuals of Mediterranean gull (Ichthyaetus melanocephalus) have been tagged in their breeding area near the city of Antwerp (Belgium), 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).
