Thanks to Barbara Ganter and husband Hans-Ulrich Rösen, on holiday from Germany, for the report and photo of K74.
K74 was banded on Appledore Island, Maine in May 2011. At that time K74 was an adult gull with a nest. Nesting status means that K74 was a minimum of four years of age at the time of banding and would now be about nine years of age or older. Herring Gulls can live twenty years or more.
K74 has never been reported as far south as Cape Cod so this report is of special interest to the project.
