Thank you again Malcolm
@ChrisHill, Seagull is a generic term used loosely for all Gulls found by the sea so in that respect, yes, it is a Seagull. At Project Noah we try to identify all organisms down to species level using scientific names, which consist of Genus (generic) and species (specific) latinised names. So, now for gulls there are 11 genera containing 45 species, although this can change slightly as scientific studies produce more information. This particular gull belongs to the Genus Larus, the most common, and the species is we think is fuscus. This translates in plain English to Lesser Black-backed Gull.
Is it a seagull?
Larus fuscus for me also.
