At last I managed to get some time to call over to West Sussex to see the dainty Little Gulls at Worthing and the Kumlein's Gull at Littlehampton.
Brooklands Park was first and the Little Gulls were showing straight away. It immediately became apparent that in flight shots were going to be very difficult. There have been so many excellent in flight shots of these gulls, but not by me!! Fortunately two of them posed on the water in front of us making it a little easier.
This one was laughing at my in flight attempts!!
It was then on to Littlehampton where the tide was coming in strongly. The Kumlein's was on the far bank for a few minutes before flying upstream and out of sight. The Glaucus Gull had obviously been feeding all morning and was asleep at the end of the breakwater.
We then went back to Widewater again where the Mergansers were a little closer than we have had them before.
This looks like a scene from The Exorcist but there is a fish there!!
