Female Black Headed Gull

A close in shot of a Female Black Headed Gull at Needham Lake in Suffolk. There seems to be quite a few of these species around the lake, although I can't recall seeing them in previous years. The gull is in winter plumage - the head darkens as breeding season approaches.

Needham View

This photo is a view across Needham Lake in Suffolk. The lake used to be a gravel quarry but was flooded in the 1970's and has remained so ever since. The birds on the surface of the lake are largely moorhens and black headed gulls.
