Do you remember the bit in the film “Karate Kid” where he stands on the posts by the sea and stands on one leg,raising his arms and in my mind looking like a seagull?
Here is a seagull looking like the Karate Kid.
A Mediterranean Gull on the beach car park at Workington,West Cumbria.
Athough these gulls are relatively rare in the UK,this one has been at Workington for some time now.I first saw him in October 2012.This was 7th Jan 2013,and another tick to my 2013 birdlist (now at 68)
He is known to the locals as “Stumpy” as he has a bad leg that is always tucked up underneath him.In this instance I caught him in the act of landing.
