Yellow-legged Gull ~ Ad. W ~ Majorca, Spain - Oct '13

Sunday 3 November 2013

The following images were taken during the weeks stay at a few locations ...
Cala de sa Calobra
Port de Soller
Formentor Beach
Port de Pollenca
With the latter being the best site ...

These adult birds have just a bit more growth to complete in P10 ..
Also note that some have a mirror on P9 and others do not ..
Some only have a P9 mirror on one wing ..

The light varied over the week from near perfect to harsh but still pressed that trigger ...

Great images Mick, especially the flight shots and that low down over the shoulder frame.
