The photograph shows a Black Headed gull drinking from a small river that flows into the lough. The gull is in its summer plumage where the head is a dark brown to black colour with a white ring around part of the eye.

    1. Thank you, glad you enjoy B&W Wednesday. I love black and white photography, think it stems from my shooting film many years ago.
      I love the wit and homour on your site and little Harper seems to be the worlds best laid back dog.
      Stay safe.
      George
