    Less abundant than Herring Gulls now (or so it seems), it's pleasing to see more than just one or two BHGs at at time. They're rather attractive really, quite dainty and sometimes having that very faint hint of pinkish on the underparts. The nurse visited to give me my first jab last Tuesday...

    Black-headed Gull

    A rarity in North America, California has 32 previous Black-headed Gull records. Immatures and adults in winter plumage lack the dark brown hood. They are distinguished from the similar Bonaparte's Gull by their larger size, thicker orange based bill, and darker underwings as seen here. Note...

    See... he's OK Ella

    The gull gave up on trying to climb up the roof and came back to investigate the food on the other one. Ella was concerned he'd only got one leg, but you can see he's complete.

    A Wood Pigeon looking on while the Black-headed Gull demonstrates his best ballet position. Couldn't resist this one for my Saturday Fun entry. That roof is quite steep and gulls, particularly, always struggle to climb it. TTTW

    Always hope

    ... when we see some Black-headed Gulls that they may stay on and breed, but it just doesn't happen sadly. They've not found the driest of spots for resting up, have they LOL.
