Little Gulls

On impulse I dropped in to quickly scan Gunwade Lake at Ferry Meadows on the way home from work this evening. This has sometimes proved worthwhile (e.g. Brent Goose and Otter) and this time it was the delightful sight of eight Little Gulls dancing over the water. All but one (a third year) were in their second calendar year.

They were on the go all the time so photography wasn't really an option but I tried a few digiscoped flight shots anyway.

Little Gull (Larus minutus), 2nd calendar year

Digiscoped with Nikon CP995 and Leica APO 77 + 20x eyepiece
