Little Gull Hydrocoloeus minutus (formerly Larus minutus )

This species can be seen in Norfolk at any time of the year but is most numerous in the autumn when large numbers can gather offshore. In spring it is regular but generally in smaller numbers, often inland, and in summer immatures often linger at coastal sites.
