One of the largest gulls in the world, and the most opportunistic!
Our Expert Says… "Ever the opportunist, I've witnessed glaucous gulls hanging around beneath cliffs where they know guillemot chicks are about to throw themselves down as they leave the nests for the first time. If any don't make it to safety, glaucous gulls will come along and simply swallow them down whole!"
Amongst gulls, Glaucous gulls have the second largest wingspan in the World, but they are probably the heaviest. They breed around the Arctic regions during summer, and then migrate further south to over-winter.
