In recent decades,the yellow-legged gull has become a problem species,In the Mediterranean region.
The European Uni takes steps to address the problem at the base by making sure that fich waste also dumps are less accessible to the gulls.
Young Yellow Gulls feed primarily on invertebrates but a study in Spain there was found that household waste for adult birds the main of there food was.
Op de Medes also the Columbretes Islands in the Ebro Delta and the island Mazarrot where the investigation took place on originated balls from the gulls.
A overpopulation of these species occur in these areas even the western part of the Mediterranean Is affected by this problem.
Solving this problem also has its downside,and this is that the Gulls will look for other sources,also this will be at the expense of other species.
It Is already banned in many countries to feed the Gulls, Is this a path to the solution? This I doubt,
