I was out at the slough today, it was really windy and there were lots of gulls blowing about overhead. Then, in that weird but awesome human brain pattern-anomoly-findy way, I saw this potentially not-gull flying over and took some snaps. It’s possible that this bird is, in fact, a gull. But to me it looks a bit like a peregrine falcon.
(It’s kind of killing me that I can’t recognise this bird. I know a lot about peregrines, I used to work falconry birds at the zoo. I fed the peregrine every day for a year.)
