  • Thank you Jenny for your comments and fave!
    They seemed to be having quite a feast of starfish, either whole or legs stolen from the original possessor.

    A great photo Trish, I haven’t seen a seagul like this before, is that in Australia?

  • Thanks Mark!
    I was going to say it is similar to the Australian Kelp Gull, but although the beaks are similar with a reddish mark (unseen in this shot), the feathers are actually quite different. This was on the east coast of U.S.A.
