YELLOWLEGGED GULL

Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

Thirty years ago, Yel­low-legged Gull was what some bird­ers called the micha­hellis sub­species of Her­ring Gull, which was seen when those same bird­ers hol­i­dayed in the Mediter­ranean. But times have changed and the Her­ring Gull and Lesser Black-backed Gull com­plex has un­der­gone some ma­jor tax­o­nomic re­vi­sions. At least 1,000 now win­ter in the UK, and the odd pair even breeds.
