A pair of Ring-billed Gulls at Helston Boating Lake

Helston seems to be on the birding map at the moment with two first winter Ring-billed Gulls frequenting the boating lake. Both were together today preferring to feed on bread intended for the ducks. Nearly all of the images below are uncropped and were not in need of sharpening. As both birds were tame and close, I used the 300mm F/2.8. One of the birds is obviously larger and heavier looking but subtle differences in plumage can separate them.
