    Ok I know they are not as hard to get close to as some of the birds the guys with real skill get on this forum but I love gulls. They have great attitude especially the last one. Incidentally, I thought I had specks on my lens but the black bits are bugs on the birds.

    These are really nice! These birds have some interesting features in their eyes that probably go unnoticed by most of us but your photos show this perfectly.
  5. Nice set Andy. Very cool close ups.

    Thank you all for your comments.
    The reason they got so close is that we were sat on a harbour eating fish and chips, great decoys.

    Best regards
