Brilliant Mick. Love the nearest bird. Thanks Mick


Comment by Roy on 8th March 2019 at 01:02
Mick, well done with this one, brilliant pic.


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 8th March 2019 at 01:51
A brilliant shot, Mick. One of your best, (of which there are many)


Comment by Ian Buckley on 8th March 2019 at 06:25
Well done Mick what a great picture. It look's like a painting.


Comment by JJP on 8th March 2019 at 07:27
One of your better pics is this Mick, Well Done !


Comment by Alan on 8th March 2019 at 08:18
Flying rats.


Comment by Veronica on 8th March 2019 at 08:54
Really good photo. Hope you don't mind that I have printed it off for a pen and ink drawing...we were drawing birds this week at our art club. Thanks Mick....


Comment by irene roberts on 8th March 2019 at 09:28
Love this one!


Comment by Poet on 8th March 2019 at 09:34
Even the most humble of us can at times seem most balletic. There is beauty in everything if we care to look.


Comment by Anne on 8th March 2019 at 09:35
What kind of bird? Are they some kind of tern?


Comment by Philip G. on 8th March 2019 at 10:52
I've been having a 'gander' elsewhere Mick and it appears as though these are Little Gull's in their winter plumage. I hope you manage to nail some of the many shrubs, and small trees that are now showing such tremendous colouring.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 8th March 2019 at 12:45
Well done Mick, a moment captured, great stuff !


Comment by Poet on 8th March 2019 at 13:00
My guess Philip is that they're Blackheaded Gulls ( who only develop their dark caps in summer.) Only guessing.
There's a Coot,for sure.


Comment by Pw on 8th March 2019 at 15:09
Anne.they do look like some sort of tern.Mick did you really take this photo? If you did it is a cracker


Comment by Mick on 8th March 2019 at 15:11
It was all a camera trick, all I had to do was wake up early and press the 4k button which is located on the right side of my camera,


Comment by Philip G. on 8th March 2019 at 15:55
Your guess could be correct, Poet. And it appears as though 'Gulls can change the colour of their bills as well - another yed scratter, but fun.

Aye, yon's a Coot, shipmate.


Comment by Arthur on 8th March 2019 at 16:47
Kittiwake.


Comment by Pat McC on 8th March 2019 at 17:37
Because we live on the coast, we get ‘screetches’ Of herring gulls circling when the weather gets blustery, and these in the picture look similar.

Thank you Mick, I love these black and white photos.


Comment by Xpat on 8th March 2019 at 18:22
The more you look at this picture, the better it gets. For me at least . A captured moment .
Absolute cracker Mick , well done .


Comment by DTease on 8th March 2019 at 19:14
Is it a bird, or is it a bat?
O my Lord, it’s a flying rat!
Swooping low from out of the sun
He’s clearly intent on a bombing run
Which way to turn? O where is my hat?
Too late! Too late! It lands with a splat!


Comment by jj on 8th March 2019 at 20:21
magnificent


Comment by Ken R on 9th March 2019 at 19:48
Poet. Who gives a "Coot" Pun intended


Comment by Poet on 12th March 2019 at 00:08
Not you 'my noble gull catcher'.


Comment by dave johnson on 26th March 2019 at 09:54
They are winter plumaged Black Headed Gulls.
