Common Gull

I assume we mean the bird in the centre of the picture?

Common Gulls

Have tried to photograph various species of gulls this winter and Common Gull has proven to be the most difficult to lure to the lens. Whereas BHgulls seem ever ready to pose close to the camera with the reward of bread etc, Common Gull was ever wary. More intent on harrying the Black heads, Skua like for their scraps than coming anywhere near the camera. It will be interesting to see if the cold snap continues, their wariness is overridden by the need for food.

You’ll ...

... not be happy with me then. This was a total accident, I hadn’t noticed him until I got home and was checking through today’s photos :-)
