Foxhill Common Gulls

             What amazing birds gulls are

                                    Still got the winter speckles


                   This bird is almost in summer plumage

What better way to unwind from work on a lunchtime than to mingle with the gulls.
A cold E>4 but dry and bright and a pleasure to get up in the park for 15 minutes at midday gull watching.
Its interesting to see them now in different stages of plumage, some Commons loosing the head speckles for spring and some of the Black Headed starting to get their summer hoods.
No signs of big gull movement today, just 2 Heron over looking for unfrozen water.
