Fun with Gulls

Duck!...No Seagull!

Took a Good Friday visit to Blashford Lakes, on a bright spring afternoon.  As spring starts, so does the battle for the best breeding sites.  This pair of black-headed gulls were laying claim to this floating raft on Ivy Lake, near the front of a hide.  They squawked at any attempted trespassers and flew often in circles round it.  Making a good platform to photograph this common seagull.

This first photo, I liked the expression of the bird already on the raft.

Duck!...No Seagull!

Here they both seemed to peer at their reflections.
