Yellow-legged gull
Coasts diorama

Photo of an adult Yellow-legged Gull, Larus michahellis, in breeding plumage. The most common gull in the Mediterranean Sea visits wetlands, as this one here, Faneromeni reservoir in Crete, mainly to "clean up" as it feeds very often in dumps on land and less in the sea!
