|1Y Mew Gull. Do not scream with food in your mouth|
We also did one interesting reading when we saw a 1Y Mew Gull we marked in an suburb area north of Bergen in the city centre of Byparken. The distance is only about 10 kilometres, but it is interesting to know that gull hatched in the suburbs make their way to the city centre to feed before migration starts. The marked increase of 1Y gulls in the city centre the last week may therefore be birds form the areas surrounding Bergen (both suburban breeders and 1Y's form breeders in natural habitat) and the urban gulls form the city centre.

Our first 1Y weekend gave us these results:
|JN703, a big 1Y male Herring gull was one of our results this weekend|
Our total number of 1Y Mew gull is at the time of writing 39 individuals. This includes one ringed as pullus which later got plastic.
