How to identify

The Common Gull looks like a smaller version of the Herring Gull, with greenish legs and a yellow bill. Despite its name, it is not at all common in most inland areas, though it can be found in large numbers on the coast and in some eastern counties. They are now seen more often in towns and on housing estates in winter.
