Walking around 'Swan Lake', we were being eyed by the ducks, geese and coots in case we had some bread for them. Among these little 'beggers' were a handful of Black-headed Gulls (). In their winter plumage it is difficult to see where they get their name. Come to think about it, it's also difficult to see why they are called Black-headed even in their breeding plumage - their heads are brown, not black! But in Winter, the coloured head is reduced to a small spot of brownish grey behind the eye.
