Small dainty gull. Dark-eyed and long-winged with a rounded head. Breeding adults are white-headed with a variable smudgy ring on the bill; non-breeding adults have light brown markings on the head. Younger birds are brownish, with black-tipped pink bills. Occurs throughout much of Eurasia. Breeds in wetlands, meadows, and beaches; winters in waterside habitats and fields, especially near the coast. Does not frequent large urban centers as much as some other gulls.
