Laughing Gull, Cape Cod
I have (temporarily, I hope) lost pretty much all of my jpegs after a back up error - I didn't back up but copied, deleted, and dropped the portable disk - doh... So, the only shots pre-October are the ones that were on cards lurking around the house... like these lovely Laughing Gulls photographed on a whale watching trip off Cape Cod in the summer. Seems a long time ago now. I have only seen one of these this side of the Atlantic and that really was a long time ago - the bird that hung around a hospital roof in (?) Newcastle in the 1980s... Anyone else see that?
This is now the 17th species of gull to feature on my blog - if I recover my disk I'll post the Heerman's Gull pics that never made it on to here...
