    "The black-headed gull is one of the most common birds in our marshes."

    I hate to be picky, but isn't the familiar bird of our beaches and marshes the laughing gull, which does have a black head? The black-headed gull is mostly Eurasian.

    Yes. Our "black headed gull" is indeed the laughing gull. I apologize for the confusion.
