Winter Adult Ring-billed Gull

This winter adult Ring-billed Gull is an easy ID. The Ring-billed Gull is most common here on Cape Ann in the winter.

Hi Steve,
These are wonderful shots of it!!! It looks like we are getting plenty in Iceland now.... We started to see some last spring and it turns out that they are all over the country now! Even around Reykjavik main pond... I think it's starting to colonize our area and even hybrids with common gull have been seen!

What a magnificent shot! We get them here during winter migrations. Lovely!

I wish it was more common over here. One I have yet to see in UK.
Super close ups Steve.

Yes great shots Steve.
We occasionally get a rare visitor of these to the SW of England from over the pond. More frequently we get a Mediterranean Gull which is similar.
