Venus Pool - Med Gull

I narrowly missed the first winter Med Gull at VP yesterday so on arrival at 1.00 today, my first task was to scan the 100+ flock of Gulls! My luck was in, the unmistakable form of a first winter Mediterranean Gull.....







And a few moments later, it flew the short distance to the muddy island revealing those dark legs.









I waited for more action, eventually it flew over to the main island











Posing nicely.....











It disappeared about 40 minutes later, spooked together with just about every other bird on the pool by one of the most violent tussles I've ever witnessed! I'll upload some images soon in a separate posting.......
