The Herring Gull belongs to a complex group of birds from a taxonomic point of view.

The adult Herring Gull has pale grey upperparts, a white head (streaked in autumn)
and a yellow bill with red spot. Herring Gulls have pink legs at all ages.

While fish and shellfish comprise a large part of their diet, Herring Gulls will eat almost anything
as well as being predators of small birds, eggs and rodents.
They are found in large numbers at rubbish dumps and are regarded as pests
when numbers get out of hand.
