Mew Gull

Larus canus Linnaeus, C 1758

The common gull or sea mew is a medium-sized gull that breeds in the Palearctic, northern Europe. The closely related short-billed gull is sometimes included in this species, which may be known collectively as "mew gull". Many common gulls migrate further south in winter. There are differing accounts as to how the species acquired its vernacular name. Source: Wikipedia
