Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
The weight of chicks of coastal breeders in Zeebrugge is measured with an electronic balance to a precision of 1 g. Total head length and stretched wing chord is determined using a calliper with a precision of 0,1 mm.
