|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A juvenile Herring gull, Larus argentatus, sitting along the shore at Torquay in Devon. I find they're quite photogenic birds and fairly easy to take decent photos of. |
Herring gull adults have light grey backs, white underparts and black wingtips. Juveniles are mottled brown.
They have pink legs, webbed feet, and slightly hooked bills with a red spot.
Herring gulls are found all year around the coasts and inland at rubbish tips, fields, large reservoirs and lakes, especially during winter.
