Winter gulls

On a dark dank day in Thanet, one of the best places to be is Ramsgate Harbour, because at least the local birds are visible, even if they're not very exciting. These gulls were lined up on the inner harbour wall, waiting for a fishing boat to unload.

A cormorant was the most successful at fishing when I ws there, catching an eel and making a strange croaking sound when it was chased by a herring gull.


The day before, a walk around Botany Bay at high tide produced the usual waders, plus a pair of stonechats, a rock pipit and a tired grounded yellowhammer.
