Larus ridibundus Sheringham

3 March 2012

Last Saturday I cycled to Sheringham, into a strong westerly. The mature Larus ridibundus – black-headed gulls – were starting to moult their head feathers into the black breeding plumage. Some were already wearing a full black hood, others were partly there like this one. Image

I believe the young from last year will not breed this year but that I have to check.


The work on the new wind farm off shore is still going on. The base stumps of more turbines carry on to the right – east – of this picture (maximum 26x zoom).
