  1. Oh....great sightings!!! I love viewing nature such as you've shared with us. This time of year so much is happening with 'our' birds and you've found a gull 'rookery' that is very active so it seems. Great photos today Gordon. And thanks for linking in this week at I'd Rather B Birdin'...your participation is so greatly appreciated.

  2. Hello Gordon!:) The Black-headed Gull is a handsome bird. I have only ever seen one on our shores. To see so many nesting together has to be a wonderful experience. Lovely shots!:)

  7. Hi Stewart, more or less all the hides are brand new, so its a pleasure to visit them.
    Take care, Gordon.

  8. `Great 'family' portraits! We see gulls often everywhere, but a couple of years ago when we were in Anchorage Alaska it was the first (and only so far anyway) time that I actually saw gull babies in nests. It was lovely!
