Pallas’s Gull, Great Black-headed Gull, Ichthyaetus ichthyaetus,
I saw several of these impressive gulls roosting on the island off Morjim beach, Goa in January 2013. All were still in winter plumage. Thery breed far to the north in S-central Asia and winter as far west as the eastern Mediterranean.
