Tweet of the Day : Shouting at the Storm....The Great Black Backed Gull : Try saying that after a few lemonades....when you see one of these close up you'll be amazed at the size....they seem quite small when flying around...but close up ....enormous .....This one is shouting at the storm coming it doesn't seem to like it……a very large, thick-set black-backed gull, with a powerful beak. Adults are blacker than the smaller lesser black-backed gull. It has a heavy flight and can look quite hunched when perched. It will fight off other gulls and chase them to snatch food.
Don't forget The Hampshire Open Studios last weekend… my studio is open today and for he rest of the weekend including Monday Bank Holiday. Hope to see you.
