Black-Headed Gull, First Winter
Observed: 20th February 2012 By: Simon Walker
Added: 22nd February 2012
Note yellowish bill and legs, and brown patches on the wings. Third photo is an adult, red bill and legs. They may be noisy, but I have a soft spot for these birds. According to the RSPB the oldest ringed bird reached 32 years; Wikipedia quotes a source giving a maximum age of 63 years!
