The Common Gull has a silver-grey back and wings with black wing-tips and white "mirrors". It is much smaller than the Herring Gull and has pale greeny-yellow legs. It sometimes has a black ring on its beak and its head is streaky grey in winter. In North America it is known as the Mew Gull (also an Old English variant).
