The strongest storm of the winter so far delivered the expected increase in gulls, especially in Mount's Bay. These first year Little Gulls were among hundreds of Black-headeds feeding in the heavy surf approx 30 yards off shore. My gear is covered in salt spray but I think the images below were worth the trouble. One can only marvel at these tiny little waifs which spend their winter in the Irish Sea

That last image really gives a sense of scale. Excellent.
These are great comparison shots with the little gull against the black headed.ReplyDelete
