Gulls, gulls and more gulls!

This is the scene that greeted me and Chris at Peterhead on 21st January. We both agreed that it was probably the best gulling day we've ever had in Aberdeenshire. We reached a day total of 21 'white-wingers', including two new Kumlien's Gulls (an adult and second-winter). The majority of the birds were around the harbour at Peterhead. Highlight of the day was the bursting of a pressurised pipe that was transporting fish from the boat - and the feeding frenzy that followed - when these images were taken.
