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

  2. Frank I love these kinds of images only. I rarely have a chance to take them. Beautiful. Carol

  3. You got some lovely flight shots there, beautifully exposed as well...Thomas

  4. Well done with the Common Gull in flight Frank.

  5. A very nice flight shot Frank, as you say, they are not that common inland.

  6. Frank, that's a great flight shot! Not so easy to do at times, but you did good. Beautiful!

  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.
