(Edit: Not a) Ring-Billed Gull

11 Mar

I just been up the end of Ferry Road again to laugh at all the birds getting beaten up by the weather. They looked well stupid like this oystercatcher andthese red-breasted mergansers. I didn’t get out the car. They were all well jealous because birds can’t drive and I have a Clio. Pretty sweet, yeah?

Stupid cold red-breasted mergansers trying to get warm by being in the sea wets.

Oystercatchbrrrr.

Oystercatchbrrrr.

I also seen this ring-billed gull. Bosh. Nice one. Didn’t need to hang about or nuffing. Bird watching is rubbish so it is always nice to get it over and done with quickly. (Edit: Earlyworm Birder got in touch to point out that this is not a ring-billed gull at all. It’s a common gull.)

    Afraid that’s a Common Gull not a Ring-billed, I think R-B-G’s have a heavier bill and slightly different markings.

      Oh. Hang on. I didn’t have common gull yet either. Cool.
