Showy Med Gull in Rotherhithe

After probably the hottest and most pointless school day (babysitting those who had opted not to go to Thorpe Park), I was back in Rotherhithe early and had a quick look in at the pontoons on Greenland Dock. Much to my surprise and pleasure, there was a juvenile Mediterranean Gull sitting there. With no camera, I rushed back home and was back within a couple of minutes with a bit of bread, and it got amongst it quickly. Just like yesterday's bird, it was quite a vocal bird but less advanced moult wise. It also proved to be rather confiding too. Very nice indeed.

Anyway, this will be the last post for a week as I'm off to Egypt tomorrow evening to fill in a WP gap or two.
