Juvenile herring gull, Tenby

Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales

The European herring gull (Larus argentatus) is a large gull (up to 26" long). One of the best known of all gulls along the
shores of western Europe, it was once abundant. It breeds across Northern Europe, Western Europe, Central Europe, Eastern Europe,
Scandinavia and the Baltic states. Some European herring gulls, especially those resident in colder areas, migrate further south in
winter, but many are permanent residents, e.g. in the British Isles, Iceland, or on the North Sea shores. European herring gulls are
also abundant around inland rubbish dumps, and some have even adapted to live in inland cities. [Wikipedia]

Amazing shot with 70 - 200 lens, and the shutter speed tells the story of the detail of this Herring Gull entering the viewing frame perfectly.
Very nice detail and nice background that compliments the Gull in flight.
