This Gull seemed happy to sit and watch the crowds and did not seem bothered by the noise of the air display.

Many thanks for the kind interest shown in by my Red Admiral upload although the flutterby was looking bedraggled.

Often wondered how the gulls reacted to the noise of the aircraft this one looks happy enough, well spotted photo opportunity

Nicely captured Trev and always good to see a Gull documented as they are always considered as pests. Might have offset it slightly as it is too central in the frame

Makes a wonderful change from the usual lampposts!
The gulls have made a good job of 'painting' their stand!
