Looks like a juvenile Herring Gull to me. http://www.qpcc.org.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/young-herring-gull.jpg
Sorry, meant to post this too - this is my photo of the one that took a chunk out of my face last summer, when we found it with hooks and fishing line almost cutting off its poor leg. http://bp0.blogger.com/_tpnPfqFKP2Q/RqeA7rB5p2I/AAAAAAAABRY/bPxKOFseaQU/s1600-h/101_1349.jpg
I'm rubbish at gulls!I can do black-headed, great and lesser black backs if I can see the legs, herring... that's about it. Juves? No chance!I I live in the middle of the country, that's my excuse!
Hi JanI cant see either of your links?Anna I have really only just started learning more about gulls!I was doing it as a wind up for Paulas we have been having conversations about me finding a Caspian. It was the nearest I could find to one to make him really look!It worked he wondered but Jan you are correct! Juv Herring Gull!I'd like to see your photos Jan!C
Copy and paste the url - it should work, I just tried. If not give me a shout on BBF - cant remember if I put about it on there or not now.
Yup, I did, it's on BBF - http://forum.biggonline.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=3892&highlight=herring+gullIf you cant get that link, just search Herring Gull under my name!
Finally found the link!I shall post the photo Janice if you object I will remove it!C
