Always a cat picture!
High reaching snails.
At first I thought this young one (a gull in its first year / winter feathers) was a herring gull (in german - Silbermöwe, this would be translated as silver gull, much more beautiful than herring ^^).
But no, the wrong place for living... and as well a changed knowledge about the heritage of the different gull families. The mediterranean or yellow-legged or western yellow-legged gull (Mittelmeermöwe) was thought to be a subspecies of the herring gull until some recent genetic studies reveals otherwise...
You see how sad the little one looks down?
But hey...! Now you are a full species with your own name!
And it is a really big bird! Between 52 and 58 cm high...

(And yes... before you may ask... I am already sitting to long at this computer today... ^^)
