Most Gulls are highly underated and are taken for granted. You have captured the true beauty in this fine Juvenille.

A fine shot of this juvenile gull, the detail in the plumage is terrific. Gulls are public enemy number one in Gloucester and are the bane of many of the residents and office workers lives!

I know what you mean about gulls, I find something so mythical about them - almost like messengers - daft I know - but I adore them and this is a most beautiful capture - you have done him proud. Sues
