Maybe a fluffy white Easter Chick, or a child's plush toy left behind on a pier? Nope, none of the above for this is just a regular, everyday, common Herring Gull. But what you see, from where you sit, or in this case, stand, can often can give a unique viewing. I really have never thought of a Herring Gull as cuddly but this one looks like it could fit into that catagory. For a closer reality check however, the photo to the left, above, gives the more common view that we are used to seeing. The Herring Gull is the most common gull that I see; then running a close second would be a Ring-billed Gull, and third would be the Greater Black-backed Gull.
