Burren Med Gull

A Burren Mediterranean Gull
Not many of these birds breed in Clare.Slightly larger than Black-headed Gull, more similar to Common Gull in size and shape but bill stouter. Adult is distinctive, breeding plumage has black hood. Tends to be uncommon within the county, often found with flocks of Black-headed Gulls.


  1. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. We just did a quick wiki search and got some information about these birds. We love their full black head. Really neat looking. Have a great day.
