Big Birds Flying Across The Sky

16 Seagull

While coming back on the boat from the Isle of Mull to the town of Oban on the west of Scotland, I took these photos of a seagull that was following behind us. I presume he (or she) was using the boat’s slipstream to grab a free ride. Sometimes the seagull got blown back and had to fight to catch the boat again, but mostly it managed to stay the course. I took loads of photos and here are five that came out quite well along with a few tunes concerning this particular bird

    • It was indeed. I’d forgotten that, Erin. It seems the song was written about 30 years ago in response to a study showing that between 10 & 15 % of seagulls liked to wear comfortable shoes. Apparently, it’s not uncommon in the animal kingdom

  1. Thank you very much! It’s not many bands that give their name to a type of haircut. Roll on the new football season
