They migrate south to winter in Southwest Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, East Asia, and East Africa. It is also known as Herring Gull, Kola Lesser Black-backed Gull, Siberian Gull and Yellow-legged Herring Gull. It was considered as a separate species (Larus heuglini) but is now usually treated as a subspecies of the Lesser Black-backed Gull.
