I would say that they are young gulls Sylvia before the feathers turn white. a Common Tern young is very like these......a bit like the cygnets they loose that brown feather look as they mature...

I have look at Google they call them common gulls...:-))

Thank you all! I also thought that they're young gulls, but maybe a different sort from the blackheaded ones, as their beaks and necks look longer.

A wonderful capture and composition. I like how you added the small amount of green with the flower on the right side. Superior in full screen.
Thanks for all of your comments on my photos...Greatly appreciated.

Nice get together, Sylvia! Maybe you can visit again in a few weeks and look if the feathers are changed in white....?

I've seen so many different kinds and color combinations of gulls on FT over the years. I've always liked gulls (don't know why)....maybe because they are near the sea (usually). Is this fresh water or salt water in the photo?

Thanks very much everyone!
Larry - this is a freshwater lake just outside Nottingham, so quite a long way from the coast. At the English seaside you're more likely to see the bigger, noisier herring gulls.

Kinda knocks that ole saying of "birds of a feather flock together" down the drain...wonderful capture : ))
