I've forgotten the name of this bird and been too busy writing Xmas cards
to refresh the old brain. I'm sure lots of you will know it. Taken on
Benbecula Beach in Outer Hebrides. Never used at club.
Thank you all for kind comments on the Oyster Catcher.
Have a great weekend.

Excellent capture of the Gull Kate, but composition wise not so good as more space at the back than front.

Another great shot Kate, a difficult shot to get right with the black head and white body, nicely balanced.

A beautiful gull, and the reflection makes it more so. As has been mentioned already, more space ahead of him would make this perfect.
