Juvenille Herring Gull
Final postings from Suffolk. The photographs were taken the car of some birds on the shingle beach at Aldborough and the birds there.
It's great to find birds fairly close to hand and when you focus on them they immediately look sharp and the ridges of shingle behind are out of focus.
I like Pied Wagtails and there was some on the farm where we stayed at Iken. I think the bird pictured looks nice on the shingle beach.
It may seem strange but I usually end up disappointed with my Jackdaw shots, the birds eyes often look odd, however I am happy with these results and particularly like the pebble in the mouth of one bird.
I also liked the juvenille Herring Gull sitting on the top of a shingle bank with crashing surf in the wind behind.
