19/08/2013 West Kirby Marina Lake

Mediterranean Gull: Instead of doing the house work on my day off I decided leave the dishes and hovering behind and take a trip to the North Wirral shore for a spot of birding.
I began on West Kirby's Marina Lake were I came across this little beauty. I love a good gull so waited around for the bird to wake up and move of the pier.
After a good long wait, and with some help form the kids on the sailing club making a lot of noise close to the pier the bird woke up and took off.

The gull made a pass of the lake and after landing on the water for some close up shots it took off again and landed on top of the public toilet building just opposite the lake.
