The name of this species is a little misleading since the head of this small gull is more brown than black.
Black-headed gulls are found inland and there are lots sighted on the wetlands.
You are most likely to hear these gulls before you see them, as they are noisy birds and are usually seen in flocks.
They eat worms, insects, fish and carrion.
