A Feeding Frenzy

Shooting practice. 
Something to do if there is nothing else to photograph.

I happen to arrive at a bridge on my walk when some people were feeding an assembled Gull flock.

  1. Great practice results, Roy. I've never seen so many Gulls together, even in a photo! :)

  2. I have really looked, but can't find a Med Gull amongst them Roy! Nice of people to feed the gulls, gives an interesting group of shots.

    1. They do vary with the different ages Kathie and as they are one of our common species we do tend to overlook them a lot.

  6. Lovely sharp shots Roy. I was looking in amongst for a Med Gull. Not sure if you get them over that side of the country?

    1. Thanks Jen, yes we get them apparently, but I haven't seen them (unsurprisingly).

  7. Enjoyed this post! I will have to admit I don't often think of gulls as being beautiful, but these are great! Also love how the coot managed to be in the pictures too. Maybe he likes to "photo-bomb".

    1. Thanks Kathryn, yes there are some really nice species of Gull to look at anyway. Coots are everywhere.

  8. Hi Roy

    What a beautiful dance of greys and whites with a coot for a dark accent. Very nice.
