The Mew Gull is the name of the North American subspecies whereas Common Gull is that of European and Asian subspecies. They share a wide distribution in both New and Old Worlds. The race L.c. brachyrhynchus is sometimes considered a full species by some authors, but currently, four subspecies are recognized. However, more taxonomic studies are required.
The Mew Gull or Common Gull is the smallest “typical” gull with white head and black wingtips with white spots. It frequents the coastal waters during winter, but it breeds mainly around lakes, coastal marshes and moorland areas, sometimes away from water.
The Mew Gull or Common Gull breeds in northern temperate Eurasia and NW North America, and it winters along the seacoasts and around large lakes. The species is currently not globally threatened, although the wide range does not allow the determination of the population trend.
