SEAGULLS IN DAWLISH, SOUTH DEVON



More photos from our trip to Dawlish last summer.  Where the river runs into the sea, there were dozens of seagulls taking a drink of the fresh water and also bathing.  


























































I will be linking with the following memes as they become available, with my thanks to all our hosts.

Lovely photos of the gulls. I always miss them when they leave in the autumn. Enjoy your weekend, Denise!

beautiful series of gulls shots especially the one bathing

All the pictures are great. I wonder how those gulls are coping in the gale force winds we have at the moment. Just now I saw a few garden birds swept along in the wind, it was so strong they couldn't even flap their wings.

There's nothing like a bunch of gulls to put on a show. Usually there's a fair bit of scrapping.

Those gulls are having a great time bathing bathing in the river. It also looks like it was fun to watch! Have a great day, Denise!

They are like a bunch of children playing on a playground or splashing in rain puddles. Really enjoyed see them up to all of their antics.

Gorgeous and artfully composed images of the gulls Denise!! I especially like the close ups [the wings open] and the cropped image of it preening/water splashes!!

Thank you for linking up this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin'. Much appreciated.

I like to see familiar birds when we travel, because it makes me think about how we are all part of the same wonderful world!

Donna said...
