Wow! These were certainly worth the wait - absolutely beautiful.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

And well worth the wait it was Lawerence, what a beautiful pair of photos.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
In reply to Catlady:
