Black-headed gull

(Larus ridibundus) or kokmeeuw in Dutch.

I like the sharp head and rear parts while the wings show movement. From a birdwatcher's point of view, the picture is correctly exposed despite the fronts of the wings are overexposed. Here you see that the English name is misleading since the head in fact isn't black but rather chocolate brown.

Cheers, Jens.
