Enough already

OK, last post on this bird, promise. But it was sunny, there wasn't much else going on, and it's such a show off...
The 1st winter Bonaparte's Gull was pattering on the surface like a petrel today...
...as well as dip-feeding like a marsh tern...
...and fly-catching like a Little Gull
Against the reedbeds of Radipole Lake
Almost walking on the water at times
A successful catch
Better light than yesterday but we both had strong winds to contend with
After such a long gap since the last Dorset one, it has certainly provided plenty of opportunities to catch up with it
When I first photographed this bird it spent much time on the water - not today though
A very characterful bird
