The influence of the foraging area on the intake of trace elements was evaluated in tissues of two species of gull: the black-headed gull (Larus ridibundus) and the herring gull (Larus argentatus). Mercury levels were higher in birds from the coastal environment than in those caught on inland dumps; birds found at one dump site showed high levels of lead. Interspecific differences in the levels of mercury and cadmium are discussed.
