Bird Advent calendar – Day 20

With only 5 days until Christmas who will be the last 5 birds?

Day 20 of my countdown to Christmas is the Black-headed gull.

I saw this Black-headed gull, in winter plumage, down by the River Thames, it was sat resting in somebodies back garden.

Black-headed gulls are found inland, at places like rubbish tips, fields and on my local patch, Farmoor reservoir. They eat earthworms and insects, and like many other gulls they will scavenge household waste.
