         Iceland Gull.   Larus glaucoides.  Status:  Scarce, but regular winter visitor, 
A medium-size gull, smaller than most herring gulls. It has a rounded head and smallish beak, giving it a dove-like    expression. It has   very pale plumage and white wing tips, and, like the glaucous gull, it is sometimes referred to as a 'white-winged' gull. It is a winter visitor, with small numbers of birds, usually seen singly. It breeds in the Arctic and winters as far south as New York, Ireland and Britain
