Ellesmere - Little Gull part one

I'd called at the Mere the previous day and had enjoyable albeit distant and into the light views of the juv Little Gull which had been hanging around there for the past week. That was all about to change!

Close enough to enjoy a bit of feather detail on the water...

But there were plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Gull in flight. A couple of close underwing passes!

The upperwing is so neatly patterned

And of course the first objective was a to get a full on banking shot!

Followed by an angled low approach

The last image reminds me of a Great Shearwater shot I enjoyed a few years ago! This will run it close as a favourite?

There's more to come, this little fella was catching insects...
