First of all want to say thank you so much to handlerstudio for his very kind user award for my last post, and to everyone who dropped into C&C. Always great to see you!

Was at the London Wetland Centre today and took this shot of a couple of gulls seemingly having an altercation. Feel free to fill me in on what you think they are saying to each other!

Like all Black Headed Gulls they just squabble for the sake of it, Alex.
A bit like some humans really.
Don't think they are saying anything profound.

Best holiday wishes for you.

Skilful bit of clicking here Alex; sharp, full of colour, movement and texture.

Seasons Greetings Mrs.

I think Ali is right and he's gone and forgotten the fish and is getting a severe telling off from the missus!Wink An excellent action shot which lends itself to a good caption competition

A great action shot Alex. I like the inclusion of the third gull ignoring the other two.
