They're feisty little things that hang around in gangs and chase away much bigger gulls that dare to venture into their 'patch'. They seem quite happy around people and you can get very close to them before they move away from you.
|The gang have spotted something!|
|Lined up facing the wind ... somebodies missing though!|
The collective noun for gulls is a screech, which is very appropriate for these noisy little birds. Certainly the thousands of them that we found at the old oysterbeds were making a terrible 'screech'.
|A screech of black-headed gulls|
