Silver Gull

Larus novaehollandiae


Gulls or seagulls are birds in the family Laridae. It is impossible not to spot a seagull on Australia beaches.


I think in picture 2 there are two slightly different seagulls.

Hi bhupendra! These are actually called Silver Gulls & yes, you are so right, it's impossible not to spot one on the beach here. The one with brown on its wings in your second shot is just a little younger, hence the different colour. Lovely spotting :)
