This smaller delicate long-narrow-winged looking Gull had a black head, white wedge on the leading edge to the primaries with a narrow black line on the trailing edges, seen from above & below. We watched the gull sit on the water picking food (flies?) off the surface with its dark bill. The Egrets were in breeding plumage with fluffy white chest feathers, black legs with yellow feet and dark bills.
