Nice catch, but it’s a Herring Gull, if it wasa Pacific he’d be a long way from home!
Thank you Jon xx
What a great capture… wow..xx
thanks Lorraine xx
Nice sharp capture Lynn. Further to the debate above, it’s a herring gull, and the red tip on the beak is for the chicks to peck at when they want food which the parents regurgitate. It acts as a marker for them.
Yes l’ve heard that about red mark on their beak, amazing isn’t it xx
Great action capture Sis xxx

Perfect timing Lynn – I always seem to have too slow a shutter speed when I try these.
