Great Black-backed Gull – Larus Marinus
The Great Black-backed Gull is really big and the black coat (as it’s called in German – Mantelmöwe) is very impressive. Its pale legs make the difference to the yellow legs of the Lesser Black-backed Gull. Even though this is a typical sea bird (photos from the Baltic Sea) – there is always one wintering in Zurich, Switzerland, at the lake.
