Abstract
This study reports on an experiment which used artificial nests and eggs of Audouin's Gulls (Larus audouinii) to examine the intensity of predation by the Yellow-legged Gull (L. cachinnans) in the Columbretes Islands (Castellon, Spain). I also examined the relation between nest location and predation, and investigated the temporal patterns of predation. Predation on nests was rapid and intensive from the first day (78%), and increased to 100% within a period of one week. The position of nests in the colony, or the extent of vegetation cover near the nest did not affect its probability of being preyed upon first.
