15th July. Shitty Gulls

I confess (though I'm sure I've done this before) that I hate large gulls particularly the Herring Gull complex thingies. They look shit, eat shit therefore are shit at least in my book. However given the fact that there was very little else (infact there was nothing) other than Lesser Black-backs to look at I felt obliged to look through them. After a couple of minutes of eye strain I picked up an adult Yellow-legged, though I suppose it could have been a 3rd summer but who really gives a shit! There could have been a dozen or so immature birds but to be honest Heroin would be more appealing than sifting through this mass of dross!


It's in there somewhere, the one with the yellow legs - wait a minute.................

Oh yes, I know what you mean about gulls. Seawatching... another pastime where I'd rather have my eyes sucked out and replaced by hot toffee apples rather than get involved in...
... Artic Terns at 3miles... fuck off!

That should say Arctic... see what I mean even the thought of seawatching and I can't spell... mind numbingly boring.
