Signs of Spring at Swanpool, Falmouth

with No Comments
This Black-headed Gull photographed on Swanpool Local Nature Reserve lake was showing the chocolate brown summer hood breaking through the white winter head plumage.

Insight: The Black-headed Gull is the most common Gull in the UK and may be found both inland and on the coast. Black-headed seems an inappropriate name given that for much of the year adults have a white head and in full summer plumage their heads are chocolate brown not black.
