It’s Time For A Break From Unpacking~

         
    Unpacking has taken much longer than I expected. But enough is enough, it is time for a break.




    Sitting on the beach in the company of hundreds of seagulls is more than enough to compensate for the past few week’s hard work.

















  Not only is the size of the Herring Gulls impressive, but their greed for human food is also a plus for me, enabling me to get really close.










    The Herring Gulls are sometimes are nuisance for local people here because they can be aggressive around humans, especially children. So they are not everyone’s favourite birds on the west coast of the UK. However, the Herring Gull is an endangered species because its number has declined by more than 50% in the last 25 years.

I'm glad you were able to take a break from unpacking and get to the beach. Your photos of the gulls are excellent, especially the close-ups and the pictures of them in flight.

Really nice detailed shots of the Herring. Here in the US, I think they are okay....but there are many different types of Herring Gulls around the world. Gulls are some of the trickiest to ID. Hope you get some down time to relax:)

Your pictures are gorgeous, especially the flying birds. Not the most easy way to photograph a bird. But the two first pics are also very exellent. Greetings from the Netherlands, Joke

Hi:) Since my vacation ended, internet problems have kept me from commenting.

I'm giggling after reading the last comment:) Anyway, although some people may consider these beautiful gulls as s...ts, I love to see the Herring gull, and all your shots are fabulous.
Have a restful break!
