How is it that you've just got the bird in focus and a nice pose when it suddenly turns around and instead you get that so called Bum view LOL I'll leave the Id's to you but you'll still recognise them !!!

God gave us two ears and one mouth for a very good reason!

Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

In reply to HAZY:
Another nice view to add from today LOL !!
Wonder if there's a fancy word to describe an expert on birds' bums!!! 'Cos I think you're it H rofl !!
lol, they do give me their best view ......... think they're trying to tell me something when I get the camera out !!
Think they are Pippas or J-Los - who was it who was 'rear of the year'??
Think 2012 was Corrie Star Shobna Gulati (plays Sunita Alahan) and John Barrowman (plays Cptn. Jack Harkness) from Torchwood and Dr.Who. Maybe we should go through the bird photos and choose ourselves a winner for 2012 LOL !!
and my vote goes to ............... your Great Tit who has the longest chest stripe in history !
Very funny Hazy and Wendy. At least they weren't ejecting anything unsavoury. I've got a shot of a Red Kite from a couple of years ago who was out to get me. Thankfully he didn't.
