Black-headed Gull

Hi

Don't shoot me down please. I only ask so that I can learn.

Is the bird at the front of the first photo a black-headed gull?

Yes, the bird in the front of the first photo is a Black-headed Gull and the bird to the left of the Little Gull is a second-summer Mediterranean Gull.

This is exactly the kind of tuition I need and want.

I am here to learn and I value instruction such as this.

Is the LG a 1st winter going on to 2nd summer bird?

Thanks

Bill

Gulls

I think the Little Gull is still in first summer plumage, maybe starting to go into second summer plumage.

re Gulls

Thanks, the info's much appreciated.

I find that the gulls are almost impossible. I think that I'll go back to calling them all sea gulls :-)

If I keep trying I might get there in the end.
