Gull time

Seems a bit early looking for gulls but at this time of year a few Mediterranean Gulls start to visit Nimmo's Pier. Low tide is usually best on the opposite side of  Nimmo's which is know as Long Walk. 2nd summer Ring-billed Gull and a juvenile Mediterranean Gull put in an appearance.

A lot of juvenile birds around and parent birds feeding them, a good opportunity to get some good shots of parents feeding the fledged birds.

All shots digiscoped with Nikon 82ED 30x DS and Panasonic Lumix G1 20mm lens
