Some Baby Meds

Sunday, August 11th 2013

I re-visited Ferrybridge again this morning in a further bid to photograph juvenile Mediterranean Gulls. This is a new project for me, the aim being to get some pictures of birds before they had changed very far into 1st winter plumage.


Bird 1: juvenile Mediterranean Gull, Ferrybridge, Portland - August 11th 2013


Bird 1: several scapulars moulted / missing


Bird 2: has several scapulars missing & some replaced with 2nd generation grey ones


Bird 2: some outer median and lesser covert moult is underway


and finally here is a shot of my birding neighbour,  'Seamist' Pete in action with his camera at Chesil Beach, Ferrybridge, today.
