Common (Mew) Gull.

The Common (Mew) Gull (Larus canus) is not as common around here as the name suggests. I generally only see a few individuals mixed up amongst the large flocks of Black-headed Gulls.




I was delighted to find that I had unknowingly catured this one in flight.   FAB.

  1. Pretty amazing shots. You've got this taking pictures of birds on the wing down to a science and I'm so envious!! Certainly is a handsome gull. I have never knowingly seen one. ~karen

  7. Karen. Flight shots for me are far from easy. I think I just had one of those lucky moments.

    Carol, Lisa, Thomas and Shilpy, Bob, Roy and Mona. Thanks very much.
