Baltic Gulls

A frustrating and difficult week with zero birding, lingering cold, tonnes of work and little sleep. I'm hoping to get out to look for gulls this weekend but already the number of available hours looks limited. Here are a few gulls photographed in the Baltic on a family, non-birding holiday last summer. Baltic Gull is a very beautiful gull and one that I'm always on the look-out for locally.

  1. Hi Matt
    This is really good to see you on here! Really excited to find you were blogging. I will read with interest. Great sketches.

  2. Hi Josh. Really chuffed you like it. I'm finding it much harder to think what to write than I thought I would. I suppose it will get simpler when more birds start turning up. Thanks again for your kind comments. All the best.

  3. Hi Matt, don't worry, the amount of birds you find you'll have no problem finding things to write about, and you don't have to post every other day - just reasonably regularly. Anyway, really enjoying it so far.
