It was cold, dull and windy here yesterday afternoon ........ but at least it wasn't raining! It seemed like a good idea to go to Landguard Point, to see what was about:
I'm inclined to think that this is a young great black-backed gull, as the beak looks quite big.
Common seal (hopefully!)
Two of four turnstones wandering about on the old pier.
'Watch out for the incoming tide!'
Finishing with a wood pigeon who looked most put out at being discovered minding its own business (eating).
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
"Each kindness shown to birds or men is sure to flutter back again"
It was a much calmer (and warmer) day yesterday so we went back for more:
I'm pretty sure this is a young herring gull.
A beautiful wheatear.
The lovely Waggy chatting away!
A turnstone on the hunt for bugs.
I wish every wader was this confiding.
Is this wood pigeon subtly trying to suggest we should get knotted?
Finishing with a beautiful, gleaming crow.
