Gulls / SW Spain (1 Viewer)

I believe most of them are Grey-headed...

But I was wondering if there may be a Mediterranean or Slender-billed in there?

Thank you for your feedback!

Jose

I don't see any Mediterranean or Slender-billed Gulls here. All the small gulls appear to be Black-headed and the large gulls are Lesser Black-backed. Grey-headed Gull does not occur in this part of the world.

Agree with the above.

Grey-headed Gull is a mega rarity in Europe, with 2-3 records in Spain (my numbers may be a bit off, but still less than 10 records in Europe).
