Probably Herring or Lesser

Probably Herring or Lesser Black Backed if they are urban gulls. BHG's will be on breeding grounds by now

Here in Glasgow gulls are

Here in Glasgow gulls are ever present. I will see either Herring or Lesser Black-backed on most days of the year, with Black-headed Gulls regular throughout winter, although most have dispersed to breeding areas, but they're still a common sight. Common Gulls were regular throughout the winter too, particularly along the River Clyde into the city centre.

Other species sometimes seen, although you have to be in the right place to see them, but Glaucous, Iceland, Yellow-legged and Mediterranean Gulls are all seen at some point throughout the year here (although not necessarily by me I must add!)
