Little treasures


After strong south-easterlies there's always a chance of Little Gulls in the bay or off the Brigg, and happily, I came across about seven this morning, of all ages and at all ranges. A couple, however, skirted the shoreline while actively dip-feeding in the surf, and so (despite the very poor light, strong winds and camera shake) here they are - as dainty as marsh terns, yet as hard as skuas, and always a joy to watch.
