Pleased this week to have another one of my photos this one the Bonaparte's Gull at Seaham , published in Birdwatch magazine.
Here are somemore of my photos of the LEO and SEO's
Those eyes are just stunning and really bring the bird to life
some of the Short Eared Owls in the late afternoon sun they always kept there distance although in reality giving stunning views you do need a fairly large lens to capture detail.
Three birds briefly drifted over the track not giving me time to change my settings so they are a little dark
I like the pose of this one just looking down at me looking a little puzzled
and just a series of the same bird as it drifted across the track and down behind the hedge
Spotted Redshank that plied between St Mary's , Beehive Flash and Holywell Pond also another Adult Med Gull here they seem to be regular now I wonder if they may be spreading out from Newbiggin
It seemed to eat a large amount of fish and always looked as though it was masticating or crushing it before actually swallowing . Still not sure if it actually caught the fish or they are dead or dying near the edge as I have also seen Black-headed Gulls and a Ruff eating fish here.
The Leo has turned away again but has some nice light on its side !
One of a run from the top picture just looking down again as it relaxes
