A black-headed gull taken earlier this year on Brownsea Island. I waited ages for the bird to take off from the post, but I knew that if I took my eye away from the viewfinder it would go.
These gulls look a bit different now as they have lost their breeding plumage - the black head (which is more brown). They are very common birds but quite photogenic.
