Habitat and migration of the yellow-legged gull
Yellow-legged gulls nest on the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts from Mauritania to Portugal, along major rivers and on the shores of lakes, such as here Serre-Ponçon lake in the Hautes-Alpes.

While some overwinter near their nesting sites, others migrate at the end of their reproduction to the Atlantic or the North Sea.
