Some Gull questions NE.London? (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Am a little uncertain as to this birds ID (first 3 images), am thinking it's a 3rd year LBBG., and do the primaries appear a little on the ''long'' side for the (4th image) Black-headed gull?

It's BHGull for sure bm, Med Gull would have a deeper black bill as a 1st Winter (adults blood-red), with more of a dark mask behind the eye.

Keep to your own side of the pond. ;) :t:

Good advice Ken, at least I keep my mouth shut on Acrocephalus and Phylloscopus! Thanks for the pointers.:t:
