  2. I miss seagulls around these landlocked areas of the Rhine. Sometimes we see a gull or two, but mostly other wildlife. Thank you for showing these beautiful images, Bob!

  3. They look so attractive in non breeding plumage, resembling ever so vaguely a Bar-headed Goose.

  4. Not my favourite gull, Bob, but nice to see images of them in their winter plumage and away from rubbish dumps! Best wishes - - - - Richard

    1. Hi Richard
      Yes, they are a bit of noisy, and very much at rubbish dumps.

  20. Las gaviotas en pleno aseo. La tonalidad general de la escena transmite, al igual que las gaviotas, sensación de frío.
    Un abrazo,
