Hello, I'm looking for tips from around the world to minimize disturbance when approching gannet colonies to catch individual birds. In recent years, lesser and great black-backed gulls seem to have understood that they can take advantage of our presence in the colony for pulling some chicks out of the nests located at the colony periphery. I was wondering whether some of you had found efficient (or partly efficient) solutions to keep the gulls away when working on seabird colonies? Best, Amélie
