It sounds like your gull sighting relates to a banding project other than the
one being conducted in MASS.
Here's the link to reporting birds that are banded or otherwise marked with

Subject: [CT Birds] Wing tagged Ring-billed Gull
While searching areas around the northern Hartford Meadows this morning in a
vain attempt to find Paul C.'s Rough-legged Hawk, I spotted a Ring-billed Gull
with a bright yellow wing tag number 269 on it. I did some research this
evening on the reservoir tagging program that they did in MA a couple winters
ago but the website suggests that they used alphanumeric numbers beginning with
the letter "A" for ringers on their study. Does anybody know of a study that
might have resulted in the tagging of the bird I saw and how I can report it?
The bird was tailgating with a bunch of its untagged buddies in the parking lot
of the Meadows Music Theater, or whatever they heck they call it this week.
