Mediterranean Gull

Is there a finer sight than an adult Mediterranean Gull against a rich blue sky with bright sunlight glowing through its primary tips? This was one of two vocal birds that flew over me in Norfolk at the weekend.


  1. Could'nt agree more - that is a stonking picture, are they breeding in Norfolk yet? I had several 'Summering' birds around the Tern colonies on Blakeney Point in the early 80's but no breeding noted.

  2. Hi Laurie - thanks for your kind words! I'm not sure about breeding but I'd guess so. Must admit I haven't got up to Norfolk much at all in recent years (bar the odd twitch), but my father has just moved up to near Holt so I'll hopefully be getting back up there a little more often!
