Ellesmere - Little Gull part two

Whilst I was pleased to get a good number of decent flight shots of this juv Little Gull, I was always tuned into the 'quick as a flash' manoeuvre that signified a fly had been spotted!

Even at 10fps, the camera would miss a near 'catch' whilst the gull was a couple of feet away from its quarry! 

Slowly but surely, the insects were lining up nearer the bill...

And this trio against different backgrounds summarised just how lucky I was!

And to finish, a nicely lit shot on the water!

That will do very nicely...
