An overview of the breeding status of Laridae gulls breeding on Lady Isle, South Ayrshire during the 2012 season. A complete survey of every nest (1353) was undertaken using a Leica GPS system. Each of the species present (Herring Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull & Great Black-backed Gull) had specific territories located at different areas within the island. The population was deemed to have significant importance with regards to the overall Scottish Herring Gull population, representing nearly 5%, clearly identifying the importance of Lady Isle as a focus for conservation.
