Mediterranean Gull (Larus melanocephalus)

Been a while since I uploaded anything here; lots of catching up to do:(.


This is an adult bird. This species began breeding in Ireland in recent years. The small breeding population is augmented by winter visitors from continental Europe. Ringing data indicates Belgium and Holland as sources for birds wintering on the Dublin coast.
