Common Gull (Mew Gull) - Fiskemåke - Larus canus
Fiskmås  - Stormmåge - Kalalokki

Common Gull are a numerous breeder in Øygarden and very much a migrant. Huge numbers can be seen migrating at Skogsøy in the first half of April. Few are seen during the winter months - despite it being a common bird in Bergen city centre.
