Adult Mediterranean Gull at Ferry Meadows CP, Peterborough


  1. Hi John. Pardon my ignorance but aren't all birds adult at this time of the year. Just sayin'.
    Lovely pictures, by the way.

    1. Hi Bazza. Not all birds are adult at this time of year. Gulls have varying numbers of age groups, juvenile, first winter, second winter, third winter, adult. This bird shows adult winter plumage, with all white primaries, but only a shadow of a black hood. Birds of prey also have differing age groups. Hope this helps without being too patronising!
