  1. There is a place near us where Black-headed Gull nest. The area is preserve and there are many gulls. Lots of Black-headed Gulls.

  9. In breeding plumage it is a stunning bird, but I think we need a parliamentary committee to investigate why it should not be renamed Brown-headed Gull!

  22. I'm with David on this one, Bob. This very handsome bird (when in summer plumage) should be re-named Brown-headed - or maybe named 'smudge' when in winter plumage! ;-} Please don't be too tempted by Boris's invitation to get out more - we need to stay safe! Take great care - - - Richard
