Common Gulls on the sea

Local patch: today at lunchtime I checked the sea and discovered a flock of 104 *Common Gulls* among many other Black-headed Gulls (almost all with black hood). I never confirmed the species in the area before, although I always knew they were present on the sea during migration. So I can say that this is the first time I can identify them well.
Yesterday also a flock of a hundred Wigeons on the sea (in the late afternoon) and in the last days the usual Nuthatch singing.
