About the Little Gull

As the name suggests, the little gull is a small and dainty member of the gull family. In the summer, adults have black heads with younger birds having black markings on each wing - this forms a 'W' pattern.

In-flight, adults display dark grey underwings with paler grey colour on the upperwing.
