Mediterranean Gull

(larus melanocephalus)
The Mediterranean Gull despite its name is not particularly associated with the Mediterranean. There are some breeding colonies on the coast of Mediterranean Sea but its main breeding locations are on the Black Sea and along the Danube valley. There are some localised colonies in England. Outwith the breeding season, in the UK the Mediterranean Gull is uncommon but not rare.
Confusingly, the translation of its scientific name of larus melanocephalus actually means Black-headed Gull !
