Gull a la swallow
My first sight of a little gull. There were over a 100 gulls in the scrapes. Having had a good view of them swimming, I noticed a few gulls flying about. Turned out they were catching insects in flight. And you can see they were expert flyers. A couple of black headed gulls joined in. Have never seen this behaviour in gulls before.
