|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This photograph is the one having taken it in the coast in Kasai-rinkaikoen where it faced Tokyo Bay.|
The head was black unlike the sea gull that saw usually well and the nib and the leg did a red color.
It walked in sands along the coast, and it seemed to root out something to eat. It did not run away at once though I was near it. It is a small gull which breeds in much of Europe and Asia, and also in coastal eastern Canada. Most of the population is migratory, wintering further south, but some birds in the milder westernmost areas of Europe are resident.
This gull is 38–44 cm long with a 94–105 cm wingspan. It breeds in colonies in large reedbeds or marshes, or on islands in lakes, nesting on the ground. And, it is a bold and opportunist feeder and will eat insects, fish, seeds, worms, scraps etc,.
