    Pre-digital rarity: Laughing Gull

    Taken in 1992 using a budget lens (and scanned from a print) the quality of this image isn't great, but having posted so many Herring and other gulls commonly occurring in Britain, I thought this 1st-winter Laughing Gull would make a change. As at 2019, there were 202 British records of this...

    I went downtown the other day and snapped some photos when my beloved Georgia Bulldogs were getting demolished by the Carolina Gamecocks. I wasn't sure what this was however it was identified here and my reason for not knowing was this is the non-breeding plumage for laughing out loud. The...

    I know it's a Laughing Gull but can't figure out what it dived numerous times to pick up what it is in its mouth. Any thoughts?
