I think seagulls are beautiful birds, they are so sleek and clean. The bird is actually called the Silver Gull and is a very successful scavenger. Humans’ bad habit of throwing rubbish about has been responsible for the growing number of seagulls.
The Silver Gull has a white head, tail and underbelly, with grey back and black-tipped wings. Adult birds have bright orange legs and eye-ring.
Occasionally I see another type of seagull. It has spots on its wings and brown legs. You can easily see the difference.
This one very helpfully stood beside a Silver Gull so they could be compared.
He even spread out his wing to show his spots.
He then settled down for a little snooze.
Maybe it is just a juvenile Silver Gull…any suggestions?
