[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Black-headed Gull is now seen all over the UK, often near rubbish dumps, parks, lakes and wet fields.
This juvenile has still to finish malting to obtain it's adult plumage. They lay 2 -3 eggs taking 23 -26 days to hatch, nesting on the ground or in reeds.

hello William

excellent in-flight photography of the Black-headed Gull,
shot with very fine POV, i love the bird's in-flight pose
and the way he is framed on the image, excellent focus on it
with great sharpness and details of its plumage, TFS
