The young Gull is still squeaking in backyard. Need help?

I do not know if I hit the title, but the point is that for about a week I hear squeak from the yard. Today I noticed that this young gull seems to be making these sounds (I guessed it was Gull but I could not locate him). Of course, I did not give him anything to eat or drink, I did not take him in my arms and I did not take photos with him. I recorded it and kept the distance. I do not know if he needs help, do I have it where to report? It's 11:11 PM (Scotland) and he's screaming every now and then.
And it's not that it somehow bothers me because I'm used to their loud cries, the more that I live on the bottom floor and the gulls are on the roof. I'm just worried about him(cats may want to eat it?).
Does anyone on the basis of his behavior and what he looks like can tell if he needs help?
Below is a link to the movie.

Yep, a young gull, probably a Herring Gull. It is too young to fly yet, so probably fell off whichever roof it nested on. If you can get to the rooftop, carry it up there and put it back on the roof where its parents can get to it easily. Be careful picking it up, its parents might try to attack!

I was just downstairs, still sitting there. Gulls are gossiped around and I have the impression that they are watching over him. I'm almost sure that they will attack. I was once attacked when I passed a dead gull on the street. If I wanted to move this gull, I would have to bring him to the block, to the apartment and let it out through the window. Or maybe I should call someone? I do not have experience with birds, I would not like to hurt him.

I called Scottish spca and I was informed that if the chick is not in danger (dogs, street, busy place), leave them alone.
At night, the seagull organized a walk through the staircase, went up the stairs to the first floor, leaving feces in several places.

Now everything in the hands of nature.
