I’ve been thinking… seagulls, pigeons, crows etc. are all just as attractive as eagles, puffins, humming birds and anything else I don’t find around Southend-on-Sea. So quite why I would value photos of those above one of a seagull makes little logical sense to me, unless familiarity truly has bred contempt, and that’s not an attitude I find particularly admirable.
Now here’s a photo of a seagull, like it or lump it! ;)) I added the extra as I like the position of the bird in that one, but prefer the lines of the gull in the main.
