Wings

With the odd storm moving across the country the gulls drop back into the sheltered waters of the lakes and parks inland. Passing Hillsborough forest park I stopped for a walk around the lake. The swans and various ducks where there along with a large group off Blacked Headed Gulls. It is these I shot in the following photographs. When people stop to feed the ducks the gulls head in mass for a free meal. I could watch the flight for hours has these birds come in like fighter pilot’s across the water. Some seem to hang in the air before dropping into the water after the food. Has a flying display they are great to watch and I still don’t know how they avoid each other in the mayhem of what seems to be chaos.

All these shots where taken with a 70 – 300 zoom on a bright overcast day  at ISO 400.

Thank you for viewing.

  1. Like that one myself, it is slightly chopped has there was just the legs of a few more gulls in the top of the photo. For me its the variety of wing positions. Thank you for your comment.
