Common Gull

Easily identified as the smaller and gentler version of the herring gull and equally fond of live foods, insects and chips!

Breeds in the north of Britain, often in the countryside but can be seen on playing fields and farmland during the winter months. Can be seen in abundance at the coast especially in eastern counties.

Usually, in the company of Black-headed Gulls, the Common Gull is considerably smaller than the ‘big gulls’ like Herring or Lesser Black Back.

Eats insects, worms, carrion, fish, rubbish and of course chips!

Kittiwakes are very similar but are exclusively birds that live on rocky coasts.
