Black-headed gulls, winter plumage, Chroicocephalus ridibundus.

Wow! Thank you everyone for your reaction to yesterday's kingfisher. Much appreciated. You loved it so much that it peaked on page 2 of 'Popular'.
Totally unexpected - after all, it was just a bird on a stick. It would seem that many people have a special place in their heart kingfishers. This one is very obliging as it chooses to fish right in front of the bird hide. It has been doing so for about 6 weeks now.
