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.

  5. 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.

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