Black-Headed Gull

These Black-Headed Gulls were photographed in Stratford-Upon-Avon on the River Avon close to the Royal Shakespeare theater. They are showing their adult winter plumage where their hood, which is actually brown not black is absent. As you can see from the state of the rocks, this is a regular resting place.

This was taken at the pond in Alcester's nature reserve. I usually manage to spook any Herons before getting a pic, but this time I was already there before the Heron arrived. He was stalking all around the far edge of the pond & I just had to be patient waiting for him to move into the patch of sunlight.

Collared Dove

A pair of Collared Doves photographed in a tree at the bottom of my garden. they were waiting for our dogs to disappear before swooping down to feed on seed that had fallen to the ground under the feeders.
