Gulls

GullsComing back down the River Itchen the other evening, suddenly there were gulls everywhere.

There was nobody else around, and no reason that I could see that brought the gulls down.

Could be there was a school of fish, or something else interesting in the water I could not see.

Makes for a pretty good picture though:)

  1. good to hear from you again TZ. We leave here on the 16th for a 1600 mile journey back to our northern home port of Belfast, Maine. 10 days at sea! You're always welcome if you can get away. Cheers, R&K

  2. Do you have the Sand eel boats around your area often it could be the sand eel shoaling or maybe Mackerel? although unlikely as its too early I think :o))

  3. just thinking. Here we had a huge loud bunch of laughing gulls ( black heads) appear and they were really noticeable and feeding hard. Turns out they are just passing through on their way back north on their migration. They are not usually around here in such large numbers

  4. Hi there Rick & Karen

    I wish I could be there!

    My proper job is keeping me from doing much else at the moment.
