The black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus)

By DaveNewbury
The black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus)
Wide diet

Their diet consists of a variety of different foods, including insects, plant material, earthworms and human leftovers. Their diet means that they regularly visit gardens in search of kitchen scraps.
Despite their name, black-headed gulls donĀ’t have black heads. During the breeding season their heads are dark chocolate brown, and in the winter they are white with dark brown smudges on the side. They have a dark red bill and legs. Juveniles have brown shoulders and wing feathers,
Thanks for your UA's & V'c all very much appreciated Dave
