YELLOW-LEGGED GULLS

Lots of these on Kephalonia, and a very common gull in the region - though strangely silent - unlike our own gull species back here in the UK.
The Yellow-Legged Gull, until a few years ago was thought to be the same species as the Herring Gull, but that opinion has now been changed - it IS now classed as a separate species of Herring Gull (with paler legs)!
This is probably the most common gull species in the Mediterranean, but nice to see anyway. Look for the dark wingtips if you want to identify them on your travels.
