Adult Black-headed Gull carrying small Perch

A. R. Dean

An adult Black-headed Gull carrying a small Perch. This is nevertheless larger prey than would normally be taken alive, suggesting it was already dead when retrieved.
In general, fish comprise less than 5% of the diet, which is dominated by insects and earthworms (see BWP3, Cramp & Simmons, 1983).
