Photo-a-Day (Friday, 8th March, 2019)
A nice photo Mick. Thanks.
Brilliant Mick. Love the nearest bird. Thanks Mick
Mick, well done with this one, brilliant pic.
A brilliant shot, Mick. One of your best, (of which there are many)
Well done Mick what a great picture. It look's like a painting.
One of your better pics is this Mick, Well Done !
Really good photo. Hope you don't mind that I have printed it off for a pen and ink drawing...we were drawing birds this week at our art club. Thanks Mick....
Love this one!
Even the most humble of us can at times seem most balletic. There is beauty in everything if we care to look.
What kind of bird? Are they some kind of tern?
I've been having a 'gander' elsewhere Mick and it appears as though these are Little Gull's in their winter plumage. I hope you manage to nail some of the many shrubs, and small trees that are now showing such tremendous colouring.
Well done Mick, a moment captured, great stuff !
My guess Philip is that they're Blackheaded Gulls ( who only develop their dark caps in summer.) Only guessing.
There's a Coot,for sure.
Anne.they do look like some sort of tern.Mick did you really take this photo? If you did it is a cracker
It was all a camera trick, all I had to do was wake up early and press the 4k button which is located on the right side of my camera,
Your guess could be correct, Poet. And it appears as though 'Gulls can change the colour of their bills as well - another yed scratter, but fun.
Aye, yon's a Coot, shipmate.
Because we live on the coast, we get ‘screetches’ Of herring gulls circling when the weather gets blustery, and these in the picture look similar.
Thank you Mick, I love these black and white photos.
The more you look at this picture, the better it gets. For me at least . A captured moment .
Absolute cracker Mick , well done .
Is it a bird, or is it a bat?
O my Lord, it’s a flying rat!
Swooping low from out of the sun
He’s clearly intent on a bombing run
Which way to turn? O where is my hat?
Too late! Too late! It lands with a splat!
Poet. Who gives a "Coot" Pun intended
Not you 'my noble gull catcher'.
They are winter plumaged Black Headed Gulls.
