                               Gull With Brown Head and Red Legs

The gull in the picture was one of a group. Around the size of Herring Gull but different shape. Red beak. Red legs. Brown face. The calls they were making reminiscent of chickens and each gull was standing on a small rock at the edge of the water. (Sea.)

In fact, this will have been significantly smaller than a Herring Gull, but size can be difficult to judge on an individual bird. It's an adult coming out of summer plumage.
