Gulls are very beautiful birds, although quite bully. In Italy you can find them only in seaside areas or near lakes, while in Scotland they are almost everywhere. I don’t recall seeing any black-headed gull in my hometown, but I did in other parts of Italy. Kia’s shot shows a typical Scottish urban gull, whereas Jaana’s gull is located in what I consider to be its natural environment.
From Jaana: Overhere the Black-headed Gull seems the most common one in the city, but outside the city, I think I've seen more of the other types. This one I shot in a downtown park.
Hi Jaana and Kia - Thanks so much for leaving such a lovely comment on my Blog today. The photos you have here look absolutely gorgeous - what do I do to join in the fun - once a week did you say? Val Thomas at http://homeleightigger.blogspot.com
