Herring Gull, very much resembling an angel as it perches on the edge of a precipice drying its wings, its pristine white feathers contrasting with the deep blue of the sea behind. Herring Gulls are versatile birds, having no specific requirements for particular types of habitat or specific types of food. This means that they can thrive in a wide range of environments from rocky cliffs to gassy islands, sand dunes and tundras. Much of their food is obtained by diving into the sea, although because of their natural buoyancey, they are unable to dive deeper than 1 - 2 metres.
