The Black Headed Gull adults are roughly 13-17 inches (33-44cm) in length with a 35-41 inch (89-105 cm) wingspan. The summer adult has a chocolate-brown head (not black, despite the name), the body and wings are pale grey, with black tips on the primary wing feathers. The bill is red with a black tip, and the legs are also red. The “black” hood is lost in winter, leaving just a dark vertical streak or spot behind the eye. Setting the Common Black Headed Gull apart from the other “hooded” gulls is the fact that they do no actually have a black head during breeding season.

Thanks for looking.

A real corker Paul, you've captured some fabulous detail in the feathers and I like the clear blue of the water

A fantastic capture Paul, I truly believe that this is the best shot I've ever seen of a seagull, the detail in the wing is superb, and all so beautifully presented!
