Black backed gull
09-JUL-2005 Gary Martin

Black backed gull

Skomer Island

Larus marinus
A very large, thick-set black-backed gull, with a powerful beak. Adults are blacker than the smaller lesser black-backed gull. It has a heavy flight and can look quite hunched when perched. It will fight off other gulls and chase them to snatch food.
