I see even less of Lesser Black-backed Gulls than Herring Gulls they're just occasional visitors, particularly through the winten months.

This was the first one I managed to photograph on a more distant neighbour's roof.

TTTW

Ooops... thanks for pointing out my error. It is, indeed a Lesser Black-backed Gull. I've changed the details.

It looks like a Lesser Black-backed Gull to me.

I was also thinking it might be a Black-backed gull. TFS.

One of your rare senior moments,Delia? :love:

superb photo of this lovely gull, Delia, also thinks it's a lesser black-backed; top class, many tfs!!
Thanks for the correction guys. Sorry, I wasn't concentrating. As many of you know, I don't really do gulls. I've now amended the details.
