Today near West Langdon a large flock of several hundred Black-headed Gulls was finding tit-bits behind a tractor. There is always a good chance that there will be a Mediterranean Gull with them. Meds have got far more common over the past few years, but I still get a buzz find a local one.
Each time large groups landed before they chased after the wheels I scanned through, and in the end was pleased to find an adult and a 1st year Mediterranean Gull. I managed a photo of the adult, some way off, but failed to find either again after they'd taken off. Time won out and I had to leave them.
Black-headed Gulls, mainly adults some with their summer heads, which are dark brown, not black. The bird with the middle with brown coverts is a first year Black-headed Gull.
Three adult Black-headed Gulls.
In the middle of this group is a bird with a Black Head.the goes all the way down the back of the neck, and no black in the tips of the wings.
