A bright but very windy Sunday afternoon, helped slow the gulls down in flight as I walked around the headland to Mudeford Quay.
These gulls – juvenille herring gulls I first spotted overhead. This first one was almost directly over me.
Before lowering a bit – unfortunately the wing is slightly chopped off. I need more practice at it 🙂
And this one is just not quite there again – but I still like it personally.
Here is one fully in frame – taken a bit furher away – and cropped to a panorama style.
Not only did I see them in flight, but laying down on the beach, managed to take some on the shoreline.
As well as these gulls – these other two wading birds were photographed. A redshank and a busy turnstone.
And finally a brave kayaker was out on the Sea.
