An alternative view

Ok so the birding hasn't been the best over the last week or so. Looks like the winter movement we waited for just passed us by. Has taken me over a month to get a fieldfare at the farm!! and a walk round today with frankie revealed an empty farm. So what do you photograph during these times? Well I've decided to try and photograph the gulls.

As you can see there is still some work to go on this idea. But i like the initial look. Just got to try and refine the colours etc, oh and don't forget my remote release next time..

White winger

Seems we have a strange gull at the farm these last few days. By all intents and purposes it looks from a distance like a good candidate for Iceland gull. Then as you study it more you kinda get the impression that its a tad ' dirty ' for Iceland. So naturally you will start thinking Kumliens gull, but even then its not all present and correct.

Have a look at Rotherhithe and beyonds blog

They have had what i think is the same bird. Thanks Dave for highlighting this. So what to make of it. Will it just become an Iceland x Herring Gull cross?
