Never an easy bird at Venus Pool but with the wretched Black-Headed Gull colony building up, this 2cy (Ist Summer) Mediterranean Gull appears to be hanging around!
It's quite obliging too (when present!) but never in the feather detail range.....
Attracting curiosity from the Black-heads!
And always standing out from the crowd....
The closest approach.
Underwing flight shots.....
Never easy to land on an 'occupied' island!
Maybe somewhere else then?
Eventually allowed to settle and doze the afternoon away!
We could do with another one to settle down as a partnership?
