Gull Rookery at Flat Rock
The herring Gull is the most abundant gull about Newfoundland shores and is the species generally meant when "gull" is mentioned. It is very noisy around the nesting colonies. The raucous cries from the rookery are sometimes useful to fishermen in foggy weather, as it helps them locate their bearings.
