    I don't think I'll ever get this close to this bird again. Taken at Longham Lakes, UK from about 17 feet. Sat there posing happily until a pair of Black-Headed Gulls chased him off. I know it's a US bird, but I saw it here. Wasn't sure which was correct.

    Our lake (Clear Lake in northern California) is full of baitfish and the waterfowl and shorebirds are coming into the area in large flocks now. They sure are a beautiful sight.

    It was interesting watching flocks of these small gulls flying inbetween the waves and resting on the water miles out into the ocean.
