This adult winter Little Gull ( Larus minutus ) had been reported to be at Par Beach Pool in Cornwall for a couple of days so I managed a day off to try my luck at getting some photographs of a bird I'd only managed a few record shots of previously..On arrival the bird was showing well and already posing nicely for David C.& Nigel C. I joined them and watched this dainty Gull (the smallest of the Gulls I believe ) as it preened and took short flights for a few dips in the water.The light was quite nice, the only real problem was trying to isolate it from the many Black Headed Gulls,& Coots etc,but pretty pleased with the photographs.Nice bird.

More photos will be on my main website. Also got a couple of shots of an adult Mediterranean Gull,which was nice.
